by Joachim C. Fest

33 The Bormann Letters. Gerda Bormann was the daughter of Major Walter Buch, president of the Party Tribunal. Bormann had married her in 1929 and had by her ten children for whom he always seemed extraordinarily solicitous. See Wulf, Martin Bormann. As emerges from the correspondence, Bormann not only sent his wife's letters back home to be kept, but also the love letters from M: a bureaucrat through and through, who locked even romance into a filing cabinet.

From Chapter 10, Martin Bormann , Part 2 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
