Dear Herr Fahlbusch,

(with a copy to Richard Benert Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. )

Last year I took up a hobby of my father, where he stopped in the year 1938:

The genealogy of the Leibbrandt family. He got an

" Auszug aus den Familienregistern Ilsfeld , Stammbaum der Familie Leibbrandt

von dem Evangelischen Pfarramt Ilsfeld, von W.G. Weinland. Pfarrer Ilsfeld, 5. 07. 1938.

Much work, done by others was compiled by me, now resulting in a 80-page Leibbrandt family tree document.

Of course I found the genealogy work done by Dr. George Leibbrandt in Berlin.

Excellent work, but with the bad smell of the holocaust.

His work is included in my Leibbrandt family tree.

I gave him the following record:

22) Georg Leibbrandt Gen. 12

Reichsamtsleiter am Reichsministerium für die besetzten Ostgebiete (NSDAP) in Berlin

Wannsee-Protokoll January 20,1942; Transcription

seit 1950 Ministerialdirektor in Bonn.

Geb. 5-9-1899 in Hoffnungsfeld.

Gest. 16-6-1982 in Bonn

oo 27-10-1951 in Bonn, Gretel Brinkmann, geb. 15-4-1917 in Bochum T. d. Heinrich Friedrich Br., Rektor,


Hansgeorg (14-6-1952)Gen. 13

And here my question comes:

Recently I found on the Internet also an article where was stated that the Wannsee-Protokoll

was a falsification. (I can imagine the KGB constructed it during the cold war).

Do you have an opinion on this ?

You can find it at:

<title>Das Wannsee-Protokoll. Eine grobe Fälschung</title>

Also this article has the bad smell of the nazi's, but there are some strong arguments in it.

You can find my Leibbrandt family tree and other material at:

The MS-WORD file has 79 pages and is 345 KB.

The online version (HTML file) is 245 KB.

As I suppose that Richard Benert Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

is also interested in this matter, I send him a copy of this E-mail.

You can answer me in german language.

Sincerely yours,

Hans Leibbrandt,

The Netherlands

4) I hope that by now you have returned from your conference in Berlin, and that it was not as unpleasant as you expected (...) I am a member of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia,......
