I am making a complaint against the eleven-year-old boy Douglas Bamberger.
On May 15, 1942, at 5:40 p.m., the boy stole my bicycle on Schulstrasse at the corner of Reinickendorferstrasse. This boy has already been roving about in Berlin for weeks now without being registered, as I have already established, these are Gypsies.
I request that further action be taken.
