USHMM copy 1 of vol. 2 [under call number DD247.H5 A3 1925] was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum anonymously in October 2012.

Arthur Peters, a member of the U.S. Seventh Army 45th Infantry Division, who acquired it at Adolf Hitler's Munich apartment located at 16 Prinzregentenplatz.
