Note 047
by Joachim C. Fest

47 Quoted by Wulf, Heinrich Himmler. Masur answered Himmler's greeting:

'There is too much blood between us for that. But I thank you for authorizing me to come and I hope that our meeting will save the lives of many men.'

In fact Masur succeeded in freeing several thousand prisoners.
