A letter from Himmler to Fritz Wiedemann,
Hitler's adjutant, ten days before the
Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, in 1938,
arguing the case for letting all Germany's Jews emigrate
without any pettifogging obstructions.
Himmler to Wiedemann, Oct 31, 1938; endorsed in red
crayon, "z.d.A 9.11.38" (the eve of the
Kristallnacht pogrom). Its provenance is not
evident, but it was auctioned in New Hampshire, USA, in
(now a dead link). Brieger had written his doctoral
thesis on "Grundrechte und Polizeigewalt" (Marburg,
Univ., Diss., 1931).
