This section relates to Young's involvement with Dr Goerdeler, former Mayor of Leipzig, and an opponent of Hitler, who was executed in February 1945. The 'X' Documents, which Young produced as a result of his discussions with Goerdeler, called for determined and decisive action by Britain, but did not make headway at the highest levels in 1938-9 [DBB entry on APY].
