    It seems to be excerpts from her diary or possibly her suicide note. She says she was working in a veterinarian's practice and loved her job. The org pressured her to go on staff, promising her to make her work no more than 40 hrs/week and free weekends. That didn't happen, though, eventually she was pressured to give up her real job to become more flexible, something she didn't want to do as she loved her work and needed it for her survival. She mentions that this situations really disturbed her and threw her dynamics into disarray.

    That's basically it, but it's only a snippet, of course. Maybe some savvy anon will put subs in and upload the entire documentary later.

    Well, if my recorder has enough space left, I'll see what I can do. No promises, though.

    If you are reffering to the handwritten papers shown at (http www dot)

    there is written:
    Unfortunately this cognition came a little bit too late. It would have been better at OT III - after she read the xenu-fairy-tale.

    Well, after a few minutes of watching the report, I can already say that it'd take quite a bit of time and work to translate it all. I could do it, but it would go a bit faster if I had a little help with that. Anybody out there willing and able?

    OK, it was shorter than I expected, I guess I can do it alone within a week or so.

    Excerpt from above link - google-translated...

    Everything points to suicide, the police also found a suicide note. But there are anomalies: recipes for medicines, syringes, blood-stained paper towels. A plane ticket to Florida. And above all, numerous documents, which indicate that belongs to the Reichert Walburga controversial Scientology sect.

    The coroner identified as cause of death, "a mixture of sleeping pills and carbon monoxide." But then they discover strange wounds on the head of the dead under the hair. They include "28 deep, mostly round burns" that were her seven to 14 days inflicted before death, when she was just in America. The pathologists are faced with a puzzle. "There is thermal or electro-thermal effects with a round object," it says in a report drawn up by the constitutional protection two weeks later. It all speaks for electricity - with added "methods that can be regarded as torture.


    "I have often stood at the grave and say: How can that be something?" Says the white-haired, sprightly mother with a strong voice. "And I wish 'there is no one that a child must die." Then said the Bavarian peasant woman, she would often think of a sentence, written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard once. "We have you dead than incapable."

    The timing of the subs seems to be a few seconds off throughout the video and some snippets seem to be missing, but all in all a great piece of work. Thanks.
