Monday, July 30, 1945


  1. It is not known definitely who participated in this conversation, although it appears from Despres’ memorandum of his conversation with Minc on July 29 (ante, p. 478) that Major General Echols was one of the participants for the United States.
  2. The conversation took place at the headquarters of the Polish Delegation, 10 Domgasse, Babelsberg. While Lane was meeting with Modzelewski, two members of his staff, Gerald Keith and C. Burke Elbrick, had a separate conversation with Tadeusz Żebrowski. See Arthur Bliss Lane, I Saw Poland Betrayed: An American Ambassador Reports to the American People (Indianapolis, 1948), pp. 130, 132. The time of these conversations is drawn from Mikołajczyk’s diary of the Conference.
