No Confirmation of Bormann’s Role

Chancery Minister Horst Ehmke told the Bundestag today that the government has been unable to confirm the claim of former intelligence chief Gen. Reinhardt Gehlen that Martin Bormann, Hitler’s deputy, had become a Soviet spy and died in the USSR. Gehlen’s memoirs are being serialized in the weekly Die Welt and will be published in book form in two weeks.
