Charles Lambert (reporter)
Lambert took up the post of correspondent for the Manchester Guardian newspaper in Berlin at the end of 1933 . He stayed on this until the beginning of the Second World War in 1939.
The diplomat's daughter Martha Dodd , who frequented the Kreisend foreign correspondents in Berlin during these years, described Lambert as a pale and inconspicuous figure. In his study of the Manchester Guardian reporting from Germany in the 1930s, Markus Huttner notes that Lambert probably kept deliberately in the background, since his precarious position was attributed to the reporter of a foreign newspaper that was extremely critical of the regime from whose political center he reported that he had compelled him to be particularly careful.
In the spring of 1940 Lambert was placed on the special wanted list by the Reich Main Security Office , a directory of people who, in the event of a successful invasion and occupation of the British Isles by the German Wehrmacht, were to be located and arrested by the occupying troops following special SS units with special priority. In later years he wrote for the Daily Herald .
