Recently MOCASSIN was assaulted near his home ln Berlin. He was takenospital in the Russian Zone anderiodeek was not expected to live. In the last few days he haa been releasee and contact is being made with him through his wife. It has not been determined whether hie assailants were Germans orbut'it is thought that they were Germans inaamuoh as there have been many identical cases of assaults on Individuals who are considered to have denounced former Nazis to the Russians. Several Russian officers visited MOCASSIN in the hospital and quite possibly have some connection with the high NKVD officers with whom MOCASSIN, on our instructions, has been in contact.
