Another find from the Bundesarchiv in Berlin. This a document from the German news agency in Berlin, April 15, 1941, to Hsinking (present-day Changchun, in northeast China), capital city of Manchukuo, expressing frustration at a number of conditions present for German propaganda efforts in East Asia. “Tapping around in in the dark,” or “being in the dark,” as it were. Speaking now directly and across the ages to his sponsor: Bassler! I’m on the quest, intermittent and straggling though it may be, to find you and your cronies in Manchukuo!
