Comments

The first draft of these notes was rejected by SS-Gruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (Germany's viceregent in Prague and responsible for the Concentration Camps in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia), as it showed Moses with too western ("Aryan") facial features. Accordingly more semitic features were added to the portrait (curly hair, hooked nose).
Another request of Heydrich was that Moses' hand had to cover the Sixth Commandment
(i.e. "Thou shalt not murder" - לא ארצח  - "lo tir-tzach")
