Gestapo Interrogation Transcripts: Professor Kurt Huber and Falk Harnack.
English translation of NJ1704 Volumes 10, 13, and 20 for Kurt Huber and Falk Harnack, including interrogations, clemency proceedings, and (for Kurt Huber) execution documents. Of special interest: The manner in which the Gestapo played the two men against one another by taking excerpts from Huber's interrogations to try to rattle Harnack, and vice versa.
These three volumes are especially valuable for historians examining the paradoxes and contradictions of German resistance during the Holocaust. On the one hand, Kurt Huber clearly defined his political view as anti-Hitler but in strong favor of National Socialism. On the other, Falk Harnack defended his pro-democracy, pro-Soviet beliefs.
