Description: Folded sheet of beige paper, personally written message in pencil (tr.) "To 1st Lieutenant Gillen - officer of the American Army. Dear 1st Lieutenant! Please see me. I have to give you important, maybe decisive information which is probably of the highest importance for all proceedings. I trust you, that is why I am turning to you. Most respectfully yours Dr. R. Ley." Mounted on cardboard, in two corners remnants of adhesive tape. Comes with John K. Lattimer's translation of the contents into English. Depicted and described in John K. Lattimer - Physician at Nuremberg, "Hitler and the Nazi Leaders - A Unique Insight into Evil", p. 186. Lattimer rates Ley's "decisive information" as trivial and as a product of his pathological optimism, which might well be a result of his brain damage from WWI. Collection John K. Lattimer
