Unknown man distributes Leaflet V

I have been given the description of a man between 30 – 35 years old, about 1.7 m [5’8”], thin, etc., who allegedly was placing leaflets of the resistance movement in Germany in telephone books located in the foyer of the main post office in Munich on the morning of February 4, 1932 (sic) between 7 and 8 am.

I can only say to this that I cannot imagine who this may have been, inasmuch as my brother is not a possibility. My brother is by all means taller than 1.7 m, he does not own a gray mackintosh with wide collars, and he has never had a moustache or so-called “Menjou” whiskers [Note 1]. I also cannot think of any of my friends who would match this description even slightly.


Note 1: Menjou was an actor who was especially known for his very thick, wide, and dark moustache. The character we would most closely associate with this moustache style in 2003 would be Groucho Marx.
