Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Hans Frank (1900-1946) was the Nazi Occupation Governor of the area of Poland known as the "General Government". He was responsible for the ghettoization of Jews in Warsaw, and the genocide perpetrated there. This is a letter addressed to Adolf Hitler written on his personal letterhead, addressed October 26, 1937. Frank thanks Hitler for giving him permission to travel to Paris and would like to give the Führer his impression of the city, of life in France, and especially of the comments of Prime Minister Camille Chautemps. He notes, "... his remarks were in part very interesting and not unimportant to judge the French intentions..."
