Memorandum: / Observations and impressions of the Prison Population concerning the incident of Dr. Robert Ley's death, report by Lt. Colonel Rene H. Juchli / Headquarters / 6850th Internal Security Detachment / International Military Tribunal / APO 403 U.S. Araiy
This document is a report of the reactions of the other prisoners to Ley's suicide. None of the men seem to have respected Ley and, according to this summary, none showed regret or sadness at his death. The women were more generally sympathetic but Ley's private secretary, Hildegard Bruninghoff, alone showed symptoms of grief. The named prisoners (see above) were disdainful of Ley's decision to dodge justice, although at least two among them (Schwarz and Schacht) believed his death ought to have occurred 15 years ago; Schacht expressed regret at the delay. This document is a typewritten original of excellent quality on browning paper.
