[Illegible]. We have no reservations about telling Graf’s father about the loss of his farewell letter and the location of his grave.

Incidentally, it should be noted that the State Police Headquarters in Munich had discretionary power over Graf’s corpse. They ordered an “abandonment” of the corpse – without notification of its name – which means that the burial office was not able to track it down, nor have they done so.
