This document summarizes an interrogation of Hjalmar Schacht. It revisits several topics addressed in previous interrogations, including German colonies, MEFO bills, Germany's gold reserve, and Schacht's ideological orientation vis-ä-vis National Socialism. The summary notes Schacht's evasiveness concerning his involvement in economic war games and his awareness that rearmament facilitated the Austrian Anschluss, yet also indicates Schacht's pride in having successfully financed German rearmament while keeping inflation under control. This document is a typewritten copy on fairly stable paper.
