Ithaca, New York: Cornell University Law Library
Subdivision 39 / Keitel
39.03 (Keitel attestation, 13 Sept. 1945)
9 October 1939
This document is a translation of an enumerated list of statements by Keitel in reference to an original German document (not present in the Donovan Archive), titled, "Memorandum and Directives on the Operation in the West of 9 Oct. 1939." Keitel attests that the document is certainly and completely the work of Adolph Hitler and claims that it almost surely was not issued because it lacks a signature and he, Keitel, has no memory of having seen it before. The present document is a typewritten carbon copy of adequate quality on thin, browning paper.
