Included in this unique book are around one hundred signature's signed in the first six pages of the book including Alfred Rosenberg who was a high ranking Nazi politician and at one time editor of the “Voelkischer Beobachter”, the official Nazi newspaper. Rosenberg was also the leader of the Foreign Policy Office of the N.S.D.A.P and Reich’s Minister for the occupied Eastern Territories.
