After publication of Dreyman's article in "Der Spiegel", Stasi Oberstleutnant Grubitz is on the phone with an army general. He says they were able to procure a "Lichtpause" (diazocopy) of the original article. When talking with the typography expert, the typographic examples shown are in red ink, like the original, and the expert says he could be even more sure about his analysis if the examples were in black ink. However, a diazocopy is not a color copy and has a bluish color.
