"Subdivision 48 / Hjalmar Schacht"
48.09 (Gurfein memo to Donovan)
Mr. Shea; Colonel Taylor; Mr. Dodd; Mr. Donald Heath; Hjalmar Schacht; Sumner Welles; Hitler; Beck; Haider
5 October 1945; 15 January 1938; June 22, 1941
This document summarizes the substance of several contacts that Donald Heath, formerly First Secretary at the American Embassy in Berlin, had with Hjalmar Schacht. According to this summary, Heath reported that Schacht provided advance notice of the respective German attacks on France, Belgium, and Russia. It seems that Schacht delivered the first two warnings so cryptically that Heath did not understand them. The other information provided by this summary seems speculative or suppositional. This document is a typewritten original on fairly stable paper.
