Finally, as the topic I am addressing is rather new, my speech today is not intended to offer conclusive answers to the questions I have just raised, but rather to encourage the launch of research on something that has been ignored for far too long.

p. 130… “even Reichenau, the only leading soldier in Poland who can be described as a Nazi, was proved to have taken strong disciplinary action against men who had committed offences against Jews.”
p. 140… “Manstein exercised his discretion by taking the severest action against any soldier who committed an offence against a civilian, and … several soldiers were executed for rape and looting.”
p. 369, footnote 45… “texts and facts abound which prove that the German authorities forbade and punished … excesses, even when Jews were the victims. I will quote only one text and two facts. This text is of general von Roques dated 29 July 1944, on the Russian front (document NOKW- 1620). As to facts, they are reported in document NOKW-501. Here is the first fact: in the spring of 1944 at Budapest, a lieutenant killed a Jewess who wished to denounce him for having [ordered the confiscation of] some of her property, along with some of his men. A German military tribunal condemned the officer to death and he was executed, while several of his men and NCOs were condemned to long terms in prison. Here is the second fact: near … Rostov, USSR two soldiers were condemned to death by a German military tribunal (and executed?) for having killed the only Jewish inhabitant of a village. One finds these examples and many other facts of the same genre in the 42nd and final volume of the IMT Nuremberg transcripts.”
