Good reminder: Here Sergey Romanov raised with Jon Harrison the problems with Table Talk - I thought we'd discussed this unreliable, often used, source in this subforum but it seems that I confused us with ISF (also noted here).

Just as an aside, I downloaded a PDF copy of “Table Talk” but never read it. Onkel Dolfie did have a tendency to drone on and on. I read Mein Kampf so I paid my Dolfie dues.

Concluding his chapter on the Shoah in Greece, Mazower writes of the cooperative, interagency effort mounted by the Germans - with the Wehrmacht playing an especially significant role due to the dearth of Greek supporters for German Jewish policy - that "The Final Solution in Greece provides a powerful argument against drawing too sharp a distinction so far as the attitudes of the occupation bureaucracy are concerned between the SS, the regular army and, for that matter, the Foreign office. Despite their differences, they worked together to maintain the authority of the Reich over its enemies - real and imagined." (Inside Hitler's Greece, p 260)
