I would like to thank Dr. Taegtmeyer very much indeed for his fine letter concerning our recent publication in the Journal (1). I appreciate very much his comments and his personal experiences in the twilight of the darkest period of Germany's history. I am chairman of the Task Force on History of Cardiology in Germany; we are preparing a comprehensive report on the political involvement of German and Austrian cardiologists during the so-called Third Reich. I would be glad to inform Dr. Taegtmeyer about our ongoing efforts nearer the time of publication.
Once again, I thank Dr. Taegtmeyer for his interest in our work.
