"Near the end of the war, I was teaching at the Infantry Officer's School at Fountainbleau, France. From there I took the last class of graduates to Potsdam where we were responsible for setting up the Potsdam Conference. It was at the Conference where I met two Russian officers who took me to Berlin before the Americans were allowed - so you see I got first crack at a lot of Nazi memorabilia." The documents also follow a question and answer format, that includes the question "IMPORTANT" How many of the Taperstry’s did you bring back home with you.".... Answer: "There were several Tapestry’s still hanging but many were damaged. I had a couple more." He also speaks of the location of where he obtained the tapestry: "As for the tapestries -- they were hanging in the war planning room of the Chancellery. There were six of them - two each on the side walls and one each (smaller ones) on the end walls. The room was about 14' by 28', there was a very large, long table and about 20 chairs in the room all of which were broken all to hell by the bombings or busted up by the Russian soldiers."
