by Joachim C. Fest

52 Gilbert, Nuremberg Diary. Nevertheless Ribbentrop, insecure as he was, had tried at Nuremberg to invent substantial differences with Hitler and to present himself as a passionate fighter for peace, understanding, the saving of the Jews, etc.; see Ribbentrop, Memoirs. He assured Gilbert:

'God knows how I fought. It takes less courage to go into ten battles against ... against atomic bombs or what not, than to argue with the Fuhrer on the Jewish issue'.
