According to a captured South African recently released by the Germans, PWs are invited to
speak over the German radio. It is thought that involuntary recordings of interviews
with PWs have been made for propaganda purposes. A member of a German propaganda company
circulates among the PWs asking them to repeat their name and rank and state how they
have been treated. The propagandist has been observed to carry a mysterious little box, and
it is believed that he recorded the answers by pressing a button on the box. The result in
many cases provided a continuous broadcast of short interviews, featured by the German radio.
