Submitted by: Hans Weinberger <email@example.com> The queries on H-German regarding Gregory Douglas _Gestapo Chief_ appeared on the same day that the largest Swedish newspaper _Dagens Nyheter_ (9/8/1996) published a long article by Gitta Sereny (author of _Albert Speer: His Battle with Truth_ (MacMillan)) on among other things the book by Douglas. Sereny claims that she already in 1988 got the document on which the story in _Gestapo Chief_ is based sent to her by a man called Peter Stahl, who is now Gregory Douglas. Sereny says she did extensive research in 1988 and found out that the document -- a copy of a report, called "Uebersee", produced by the CIC (now CIA) -- was a falsification. I do not have any knowledge of this issue other than presented in Sereny's article, but since most H-Germans do not understand Swedish, I thought I'd pass it on. Sereny thus might be a place to start. __________________________________________ Hans Weinberger Dept. of History of Science and Technology Royal Institute of Technology - Stockholm firstname.lastname@example.org
