Telegram from Rahn to the Foreign Ministry, detailing the overcoming of the French shock after the disarmament of Bizerte by means of propaganda and affiliated youth organizations. He relates the continuation of French work in civil and technical jobs, financed by the French Residency. Also mentions the deployment of French and Italian experts as advisors in questions of economy and food. Finally announces a delay in the commissioning of Radio Tunis, which forces Germans to restart private radio stations as propagandistic efforts to demoralize war-tired troops of General Barré. Post scriptum mentioning of the first edition of the “Deutsche Soldatenzeitung” coming out.
