Use of Lists Such lists will by no means complete the Denazification process but will provide a simple first step towards removal of obviously disqualified personnel. Military Government Officers will promptly remove all persons whose names appear On such lists. Two copies of such lists will be forwarded, to the appropriate Public Safety Officer, who will retain one for his information and records, and will forward the other to the nearest GIC Unit, to assist in its mission of arrest and detention. Fragebogen (see below) should be obtained in addition from each such individual before he is notified of his dismissal. 6.
