Abstract This document is a summary of an interrogation of the witness conducted on the noted date. The interrogation apparently focused on "Inhuman Treatment in Concentration Camps," which is the main subheading in the summary, and the relative responsibility of Hitler, Himmler, Heydrich, and Kaltenbrunner for the various excesses that fall into that category. The document is a typewritten copy of good quality on browning paper.
