I see your site quotes at length from what Lucy Dawidowicz had to say
about the Himmler telephone note of November 30, 1941.

Why don=92t you

(a) comment on the fact that until this =93amateur histiorian=94  bothere=
to look at that file of Himmler notes in about 1970 )(it had been in the
NA for twenty years), nobody else, not one historian world wide, had
bothered to do so. Hence the egg on their face which just won=92t wipe

(b) I have explicitly demolished L=92s entire argument about the telephon=
note in the introduction to my 1991 edition of Hitler=92s War (Avon Books=
NY, 1983), where I analyse every line ofthat entry , in particular by
identifying the Dr Jekelius refered to in the note, and exposing Lucy=92s
speculation for the lable balderdash that it is.
