War Crimes Trials, Nuremberg, Germany, January 11, 1946. Dr. Franz Blaha testifying on stand and being cross examined by several defense attorneys. One defense attorney questions Blaha as to Funk's visit to Dachau: when exactly he had visited. Attorney of Frick says that his defendant claims not to have ever been to Dachau. He asks Blaha from which distance he thinks to have seen Frick there. Blaha responds Frick passed by him with several people. Attorney asks if Blaha recognized Frick himself or was told by other prisoners that this was Frick. Blaha responds he had seen Frick before in several photos and also knew he was Protector of Bohemia and Moravia so he "studied" him with particular interest. Frick did not wear a uniform that day. Blaha identifies several of the people that accompanied Frick. Before the visit Blaha had only heard rumors that "high visitors" were expected. MS, Lord Justice Geoffrey Lawrence interrupts the defense counselor to make a point.
