Aus diesem Grunde verweisen die Anmerkungen zu diesem Buch nicht auf das urspriingliche Dokument und seinen Fundort, sondern auf die Veroffentlichung in Arbeiterklasse und Volksge meinschaft: "Vgl. Dok. 154" heigt additionally z.B., dag das betreffende Aktenstiick als Nr. 154 in dem erwahnten Dokumentenband zu finden ist. Urn solche Verweise iibersichtlicher zu machen, ist ein komplettes sign in der 244 in der Quellenedition vorge1egten Do kumente diesem Buch als Anhang beigegeben (S. 323 ff.).
