This document is a summary of an interrogation conducted on the noted date, in which Pancke recounts his appointment by Himmler as superior commander of the German police in Denmark and describes the transition from Danish to German police. Pancek also describes the command structure that placed him, Reich Plenipotentiary Werner Best, and the military general on equal footing, with all three taking orders from their respective superiors in Berlin. The document is a typewritten original of very good quality on thin, slightly browning paper.
