8. Payne (who never seemed to encounter a source he didn't embrace), on pp. 48-52, while defending Kubizek against the attacks of Jetzinger, nevertheless acknowledges that it was Jetzinger's research that confirmed that this seemingly unlikely story was true.

On May 5, 1945, a 23 man Allied patrol on a mission to examine a bridge across the river Gusen will, while passing through St. Georgen, inadvertently enter as liberators into the local, and previously unknown concentration camps of Gusen (housing mostly Polish prisoners), Gusen II, and the infamous Mauthausen.

49. From Heinrich Himmler's Speech at Poznan, October 4, 1943: "It is one of those things which is easy to say. 'The Jewish race is to be exterminated,' says every party member. 'That's clear, it's part of our program, elimination of the Jews, extermination, right, we'll do it.' And then they all come along, the eighty million good Germans, and each one has his decent Jew. Of course the others are swine, but this one is a first-class Jew. Of all those who talk like this, not one has watched, not one has stood up to it."
