In this letter, dated December 2, 1950, from Eva A. Sandberger to United States (US) Senator William Langer, Sandberger thanks Langer for his willingness to understand Germans despite the stereotype that they are all "bad" or "criminal," and for all he has done to help the case of her husband, Martin Sandberger, a Nazi SS officer convicted of war crimes and sentenced to death by the International Military Tribunal during the Einsatzgruppen Case at the Nuremberg war crimes trial.
She thanks Langer specifically for his contribution in bringing about a review of her husband's case, and expresses her hope this review will lead to the cancellation of his death sentence.
