by Joachim C. Fest

17 For a full account of this affair see Emil Julius Gumbel, Verräter verfallen der Feme. Opfer, Mörder, Richter 1919-1929 (Berlin, 1929). Bormann, who was jailed for his part in it, later had his biographers spread the version that 'antipathy to the November system' had brought him a year of imprisonment in 1924; see the article 'Profile der Zeit Reichsleiter Martin Bormann', Deutsche Ukrainerzeitung, 3rd September 1942. Also Münchener Neueste Nachrichten, 18th June 1940, in an anniversary note in honour of his fortieth birthday.
