Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A testimoy from a German political leader through interrogation by the Allies. 12. Here, he describes his actions as a Nazi member of the NSDAP. As a cell leader he claims he conveyed NSDAP ideas to other party members. He claims that he led a clean and honest life, never committing crimes against Jews nor was he present at riots against them. "Crimes happen," he states, "because someone is born a criminal." He asks his interrogators to question other people about his character who have known him since 1933. He tries to assure his interrogators that he never committed acts against his morals and customs, and thus is not aware of any guilt.
