NotesImage 1: See LSE1318 for published cartoon. Notes 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." [Caption from "Years of Wrath" by David Low] Image 2: See DL2502 for original
