“I never found out anything about any of this … [It] is because of newspaper propaganda. I told you when I saw the newspaper headline ‘Gas Chamber Expert Captured’ and an American lieutenant explained it to me, I was pale with amazement. How can they say such things about me? I told you I was only in charge of the Intelligence Service from 1943 on. The British even admitted that they tried to assassinate me because of that- not because of having anything to do with atrocities, you can be sure of that.”
- Ernst Kaltenbrunner, Chief of Police quoted in: Gilbert, Nuremberg Diary, p.234-235.
