(Paris 476) War Crimes Trials, Nuremberg, Germany, January 4, 1946. LSs, Walter Schellenberg, Chief of the Security Police and SD, continues testimony. LS, Russian judge questions the witness. Sir David Maxwell-Fyfe questions the witness about a conversation he had with Ernst Kaltenbrunner about the Red Cross wanting to know what happened to fifty American or British prisoners. Chief Justice Sir Geoffrey Lawrence asks whether it was about shooting the prisoners. Schellenberg explains that he did not take part in the conversation, but was a passive listener. The inquiry was forwarded to the Chief of the Security Police by the Foreign Office. Schellenberg believed this inquiry was already a form of protest against atrocities committed by Germany. He inferred this from the fact that the subject of the conversation he overheard was how to camouflage the shootings.
