  • 1945: After the war only two of the four copies were discovered, those belonging to Himler and Jesuiter.[4] Himler's copy went to Seventh Army Intelligence Center (SAIC) and Jesuiter's to Military Intelligence Research Section (MIRS) in London.[3] Several sources stated that German Bundesarchiv also had a copy in Koblenz.[6][7][4] However, in reply to inquiries by Richard Raskin, Bundesarchiv stated that third copy of report was never in their possession.[5]
