For those of you who aren’t as at ease reading German as Vernon Jackson, here is the untranslated version of the script for this page:

Page 9: Four panels

Panel 1: View from behind a screen. KARIN BAUER (“Karin”), young, mousy, shy-looking in thick glasses, is seated reading the screen.  Behind her, GERDA, her plump, middle-aged supervisor reads over her shoulder.

CAPTION: Archives of the Max Planck Society, present day.

Gerda: A request from the United States for documents, Karin?

Karin: A history student named Taylor Chase wants to know if we have any letters sent to one of the Society’s members from the K[aiser] W[ilhelm] G[esellschaft] days.

Panel 2: Gerda’s P.O.V. looking back at Karin, who has turned her head to look at her.

Gerda (out-of-panel balloon): Normally this is not something we would spend time on.

Karin: ​Yes, Gerda, but he insists that there is a very poignant story of some kind in those letters, if they exist.​

Panel 3: Karin, perched precariously high up on a ladder pulling a box of documents off a shelf.

Panel 4: Close-up view of a scanner with Karin’s hand’s in the panel, scanning what she has found.
