61.06 (Seger letter to Donovan, 29 August 1945)
This document is a letter from Gerhart H. Seger; his letterhead identifies him as "Editor / Author / Lecturer" and he identifies himself as the editor of "the oldest anti-Nazi newspaper in German language, published in the U.S." Mr. Seger is writing to secure press credentials, which will allow him to cover the Nurnberg Trials as a correspondent of his newspaper, with the hope and intention of mitigating the skepticism among German-Americans, particularly in the Midwest, about the reality of the concentration camps. This document is a typewritten original of very good quality on slightly browning paper in good condition.
