This document comprises a statement made by Herbert M. Ritter and a summary of Ritter's background and wartime activities; the author of the latter is unnamed. Ritter's statement describes the Nazis' acquisition of artwork, primarily paintings and primarily by purchase, although the Ribbentrops' appropriation of Fuschel Castle is also recounted. This document appears to be a typewritten carbon copy of exceptionally fine quality on slightly browning paper in good condition. This copy was made on a least two different typewriters.
