Abstract This document is a summary of an interrogation of the witness conducted on 30 October 1945. The interrogation "was confined to [Diels's] knowledge of the general program of medical experiments which [sic] were undertaken in the concentration camps and the relationship of such people as Dr. Karl Brandt to this program," and to a general discussion of the euthanasia program. This document is a typewritten copy of excellent quality on very brown, brittle paper.
