Berlin, 8 January, 1943

Office of the President of the Secret Cabinet Council.
To: The Reich Minister and Head of the Reich Chancellery,
Berlin W 8, Vossstrasse 6.

As a result of the terror raid of the 23rd August, 1943, the official residence of the President of the Secret Cabinet Council, Reich Minister Freiherr von Neurath, in Berlin-Dahlem, Rheinbabenallee 23, has been damaged and become uninhabitable. A thorough repair of the rooms has proved to be impossible at present. The Reich Minister is therefore living until further notice in Leinfelden on the Enz, post office Enzweihingen (Wurttemburg), from where he continues to conduct his official business via his office in Berlin, Vossstrasse 6.

The drawing of the contributions for heating, hot water, and electric current consumption has been discontinued as from October, 1943.

For the restitution of the contributions still paid for the month of September 1943 under Chap I, Par. 2, 1.1 for hot water


and electric current, a total of 28 Marks, an advice note will be sent to the Reich Treasury.

The three servants' quarters in the basement and the garage have remained habitable, so that there will be no change there. [signed] Koeppen

Lloyd Louis Garnell (formerly Lloyd Louis Goldstein) being first duly sworn upon oath deposes and says:

By court order of the District Court of Los Angeles County, California, No. 508070, dated 8 February 1946, before Judge Samuel R. Blake, my name was changed from Lloyd Louis Goldstein to Lloyd Louis Garnell. At the present time I reside at

Hotel Gilbert, 1550 N. Wilcox, Hollywood, California.

From 24 November 1941 to 13 December 1945 I was assigned to the Office of Strategic Services, Field Photographic Branch, from the U.S. Navy, holding the rank of Chief Photographer, USNR, serial number 316-350.

From June 1945 to 22 September 1945 I was assigned to the Office U. S. Chief of Counsel for the Prosecution of Axis Criminality, Nurnberg, Germany. During that period it was my responsibility to take official photographs for the Office U.S. Chief of Counsel to be used in the prosecution of Axis war criminals. On assignments for the Office U.S. Chief of Counsel it was customary for me to work in conjunction with Lt. Robert M. Braggins, Jr., USNR, also assigned to the Office U.S. Chief of Counsel from the Field Photographic Branch of the Office of Strategic Services.

On 21 August 1945 Lt. Braggins and I were requested by Captain Sam Harris, JAGD of the Office U.S. Chief of Counsel to take both still and moving pictures of certain materials in the Reichsbank vaults in Frankfurt, Germany. These vaults were located in the cellar of the Reichsbank building and had to be reached by passing through a series of seven vault doors. On entering the final vault we found materials consisting of boxes, suit cases, and trunks which I saw contained such articles as bracelets, eye glass frames, cigarette cases, rings, gold teeth, foreign currency, stamp albums, diamonds, rubies, other precious gems, and gold bouillion bars.

In accordance with Captain Harris' request Lt. Braggins and I took two sets of pictures of these items, one consisting of stills and the other of motion pictures showing Lt. Braggins handling the items described above. I took approximately two dozen still pictures with a 4x5 Speedgraphic camera with a flash gun attachment. The moving pictures were taken with a Mitchell camera and I used approximately 400 feet of Plux X film. Included among the objects photographed were certain sequence markers bearing the legend "SPX War Crimes, OSS take, Reichs


bank Frankfurt, 21 August 1945, Braggins and Goldstein". After these pictures were taken the films were delivered to Commander James B. Donovan of the Office U.S. .Chief of Counsel for processing.

After the still pictures were printed and the motion pictures developed I saw samples of both and I recognized these prints and movies to be the pictures we had taken.

Excerpt from Testimony of Witness

Criminal Court Vienna I

Beginning: 10 o'clock


Judge: Oberlandesgerichtsrat Dr. SUCHER

Court Reporter: Dr. OTTAHAL


The witness is admonished that he answer questions put to him to the best of his knowledge and belief, and tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. He is further admonished to make such statements as he may confirm under oath if necessary.

Concerning personal data he states:

1. First and last name: Dr. Andreas MORSEY


2. Seyss-Inquart?

I see from press reports concerning the Nurnberg trial that Seyss-Inquart claims he was never "illegal." I call that perfidious hair-splitting and I am going to prove it as follows: The generally used expression "illegal" is always identified with membership in the NSDAP (Nazi Party) during the years from 1933 to 1938. In so doing, one forgets completely that there existed another illegal organization which was outlawed, namely, the Styrian Heimatschutz Group Kammerhofer. I belonged to this organization until 1932 and then withdrew and resigned my office in Kammerhofer's presence because Kammerhofer, at a district meeting in my district, had said: "We are Germans and fight for the Fuehrer of all Germans, Adolf Hitler." Thus, the leader of the Styrian Heimatschutz Kammerhofer designated arbitrarily the Styrian Heimatschutz as a combat group of Adolf Hitler.
