Note 044
by Joachim C. Fest

44 Semmler, Goebbels; also Seabury, The Wilhelmstrasse, and Ribbentrop, Memoirs. The number of applications for permission to resign is actually not known. Ribbentrop's secretary remembers only an application in 1941 (IMT, X), while Ribbentrop himself spoke of seven attempted resignations. Evidently this number is exaggerated and accords with his efforts to set himself up as a personality independent of Hitler. See Ribbentrop, Memoirs.

From Chapter 14, Joachim von Ribbentrop , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
