DR. LATERNSER: Do you render or receive any sales with the impact that no prisoners would be to be used while in the partisan fighting?
DR. LATERNSER: During the time exactly what did you believe perform occurs when an effective person was given out over this new SD?
VON MANSTEIN: It absolutely was our very own feeling that firstly the SD manage interrogate like one then most likely upload him to some go camping. I including must turn over towards the SD German troops
who had been sentenced to own desertion, once the within the combat you will find a restriction you to much time terms and conditions off imprisonment just weren’t are offered, however, that-so you can use the performing strength and avoid her or him away from evading the war trailing prison structure-these prisoners, although some who have been sentenced, would be sent to attention camps during the latest battle. For this reason, to say that the fresh turning over of every person to the fresh SD is actually comparable to death was, even as we saw it, some completely wrong.
VON MANSTEIN: Zero. I understood from prewar months there have been one or two quantity camps, Oranienburg and you will Dachau, and a police officer just who on invite of the SS had visited particularly good go camping informed me it absolutely was just good normal distinctive line of criminals, and specific political inmates who, according to just what he had seen, have been being treated really but accurately.
