David Irving comments:

HENRY Picker took over the duties of writing the notes on Hitlers conversations from Heinrich Heim, Martin Bormann’s adjutant, in 1942. I interviewed Heim in the 1960s. He told me that Picker had found a sheaf of his notes in the desk when he took over, and after the war rewrote them in the third person and published them as his own work. Picker, a wealthy landowner after the war, established a priate Hitler museum stuffed with priceless Hitleriana, for example he purchased all of Julius Schaub’s personal effects.

Far more significant than Picker’s are the original Heim Aufzeichnungen. Heim  wrote them in the first person, in direct speech, and Bormann personally signed each day’s notes as accurate. The several ring binders of the notes were purchased from the Bormann family, along with Bormann’s own correspondence with his wife, by Swiss banker François Genoud after the war.

Austrian-born publisher George Weidenfeld published an English translation as Hitler’s Table Talk, with an introduction by Hugh Trevor-Roper — the book is still in my view one of the best windows into the mind of Hitler himself. Weidenfeld had purchased rights from Genoud (as the latter told me) for forty thousand pounds. Genoud insisted that half the payment be made direct to Hitler’s sister Paula!
