NotesNotes at the Trial of War Criminals, December 1945. "Jodl wears a poker face and moves rarely... The most pitiful figure in the company is Funk. With the earphones clamped like horns to the fat, sick face sagging into the small dumpy body, he is the perfect model for a gargoyle. In colour he is light green. The next most frightened, I should say, is Saukel. He is the cartoonists' fat-necked, square-headed German, but on the small scale. His uneasiness is paunful to see. To make up for him, at his elbow is Baldur von Schirach, the ex-pin-up boy of the Hitler Youth, still good-looking with his scornful, pitiless eye. ... One of the runners-up for the 'most perturbed person' prize is Schacht, who is worried to pieces, too, but in a more refined way. ... von Papen looks more that ever like the fox shifting his tiny close-set eyes about the room."
