Film | Accession Number: 1999.A.0087 | RG Number: RG-60.2100.235 | Film ID: 2235

Session 114. Dr. Servatius sits. The Judges are not in the courtroom. 00:05:19 Judges enter and tell Dr. Servatius to continue.

00:06:03 Tape jumps. Dr. Servatius talks about the skeletons that Eichmann gave, saying that the entire request is peculiar. He refutes the accusations of Einsatzgruppen shootings with affidavits, as well as the cooperation of Eichmann with the Einsatzgruppen in the Baltics and the Soviet Union. 00:11:03 Dr. Servatius admits that Eichmann was in charge of deportations and relocations of Jews, but had no idea that death was the fate of these Jews. They were shot by the Einsatzgruppen under no orders of his. He then says that Eichmann did not demand deportations from the East and Italy, as testified by various witnesses.

00:18:06 Tape is interrupted by a slate numerous times and then ends.
