The Curtain Falls
The Curtain Falls
By Count Folke Bernadotte
Knopf, 1945, 155 pp.

Count Bernadotte, who was in Germany during the spring of 1945 on behalf of the Swedish Red Cross, involuntarily became involved in Himmler's last-minute attempt to negotiate a surrender to Britain and the United States but not Russia. His brief book relates this story and casts a lurid light on the last days of the Nazi régime.
