Wolff fainted in the court room.
Dr. Krausnick was detailing be-
fore the court Hitler's "envelope
of legality" for his anti-Semitic
program, when Wolff collapsed.
Wolff was described in court as
adjutant to Heinrich H i m m 1 e r,
head of the Gestapo and, there-
fore, as a high officer who knew
perfectly well about the Hitler
program for the annihilation of
European Jewry through mass
murder.
Dr. Hans Buchheim, director
of the Historical Institute of Mu-
nich, was called by the court as
an expert on the Nazi program
against the Jews. In two hours
on the witness stand, he totally
demolished testimony given on
behalf of Wolff by another for-
mer German officer, ex-General
Gerhard Engel.
Engel had told the court that

Immediately after the trial was
resumed, Hunsche's defense coun-

delaying tactics.
The attorney protested against
the witness being heard, ignoring
the fact that Less had interro-
gated Eichmann, as well as the
fact that the protocols which
Less had brought to the trial had
each page countersigned by
Eichmann and that these had
been turned over to the prosecu-
tion here.
Dr. Laternser insisted on calling
reports of Less' conversations with
Eichmann as "hearsay reports."
A lengthy debate took place be-
