Here's a not-often-noticed (and seemingly not reproduced) report on the assassination of Adolf Hitler (and attempted coup) on 20 July, 1944. It is recorded as the work of Carl Lindauer (see below) and was published by the Social Democratic Party of Germany "residing in London" in 1944/5. I've reproduced the entire short document below.
20 July, 1944: The Story of an Attempted Revolt in Germany; (from Reports Received by the Executive of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, Residing in London), by Carl Landauer German Social Democratic Party, London Representative, 1945.
8x6 1/2", 11pp.
Offered with the German version (below) same dimensions. Good copies. $300/pair (Hold)

This pamphlet is scarcely-held in libraries--it is in the collections of the London Metropolitan Library, the Bibliothek der Friedrich-Ebert Stitftung, Deutsche National Bibliothek, and perhaps (though this is unclear) in the Library of Congress and perhaps at the Hoover Collection at Stanford. These two copies (in English and German) were previously in the library of the OSS (the precursor to the CIA) and then in the Library of Congress Pamphlet Collection, until coming here.
The German version is not located at all in WorldCat/OCLC.
- Apologies for the unevenness in the scans--the original is difficult to get on the scanner without damaging it, so the colors are a little "off".
