To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting all documents pertaining to Rochus Misch, born July 29, 1917 and died Sept. 5, 2013. Proof of death is not required because it was widely reported. See the Washington Post obituary here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/rochus-misch-hitlers-bodyguard-dies-at-95/2013/09/06/2477b3de-1703-11e3-be6e-dc6ae8a5b3a8_story.html

"Rochus Misch, who spent five years as Adolf Hitler’s square-jawed bodyguard, courier, telephone operator and all-around attendant and was widely believed to be the last surviving veteran of the Nazi leader’s bunker as the Soviet army closed in on Berlin, died Sept. 5 at 96.

His death, in the German capital of undisclosed causes, was confirmed to the Associated Press by Burkhard Nachtigall, who helped Mr. Misch write a best-selling­ memoir, “The Last Witness.”"

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Zack Sampson
