Abstract This document is summary of an interrogation of the witness that was apparently conducted on 31 October 1945. The substance of the interrogation sounds, however, to have been much the same as that of the interrogation summarized the preceding document, suggesting that both summaries refer to the same interrogation. This summary provides slightly more detail concerning medical experiments, exterminations, and euthanasia programs conducted in concentration camps with which Kirchert is familiar, The document is a typewritten copy of poor to adequate quality on very brown, brittle paper.
