Abstract : The document presents statistical information about the air raids on the city of Hamburg in the period July 25, 1943 to August 3, 1943, as compiled under the direction of the Hamburg Police President. No comment is possible regarding the accuracy of the numbers, and while they were compiled in a relatively short time after the large scale air attacks, no subsequent lists of corrections are known to have been made. However, the information on which the summary is based is presented separately and may be used as independent check on the consequences of the attacks as presented in this document. (Author)
