How many fake sentimental books were created? Well the leather bound-in-human-skin Ilse Koch album that was mentioned at her trial, but then when the bluff was called, no one could produce it as evidence. Then we have Kurt Franz sentimental album of Treblinka with the album having the title "Good Times." These fraud album books work great at trials, for evidence.
The intro of the report has a German being killed when a hand grenade in his hand is hit by a bullet. How likely is that? That's the kind of thing you find in a movie.
SS Untersturmfuehrer Dehmke fell in this skirmish with the bandits; he was holding in his hand a hand-grenade which was hit by the enemy and exploded, injuring him fatally.

And if it's a limited edition gift to Himmler, why is Stroop explaining the most basic things about the ghetto in the very beginning?
It seems like passages could be someone posing as Stroop, with the goal of eliciting sympathy for Jews. For instance:
Not infrequently, the Jews stayed in the burning buildings until, because of the heat and the fear of being burned alive they preferred to ,jump down from the upper stories after having thrown mattresses and other upholstered articles into the street from the burning buildings. With their bones broken, they still tried to crawl across the street into blocks of buildings which had not yet been set on fire or were only partly in flames.

Is the above something Stroop would write, or something that Adolf Berman's crowd would write? Along with the Janusz Korzcak who led his orphans to the death camps. Or Berman himself holding up a pair of children's shoes at the Eichmann trial.
Or consider the following:
Our setting the block on fire achieved the result in the course of the night that those Jews whom we had not been able to find despite all our search operations left their hideouts under the roofs, in the cellars, and elsewhere, and appeared at the outside of the buildings, trying to escape the flames. Masses of them - entire families - were already aflame and jumped from the windows or endeavored to let themselves down by means of sheets tied together or the like. Steps had been taken so that these Jews as well as the remaining ones were liquidated at once. During the whole night there were shots from buildings which were supposed to be evacuated. We had no losses in our cordoning forces. 5,300 Jews were caught for the evacuation and removed.

First of all, on the previous page, Stroop said the Germans leave the ghetto at night. Secondly why sheets? The Jews knew about how the Germans burning buildings, with all the access to armaments factory materials in the ghetto, why not have some rope on hand? The sheets is another psychologically powerful image of the Adolf Berman type: people associate the image of climbing out of buildings with tied sheets, with fire disasters. Only to be liquidated at once!
And families aflame who were then liquidated? Fits with Berman's techniques but doesn't fit with SS culture at all, except the Hollywood stereotype of SS culture. Is Himmler supposed to read this or the guy whose face melts off in Raiders of the Lost Ark?
Creating a completely fake document would not be as effective as inserting lines and paragraphs into a real document. The above quote if from an "addendum." It's described as a "copy of a teletyped message."
This would also explain the doctor Tsvi Nussbaum, who claims he's the little boy with his hands raised in the world's most well-known holocaust photo. He bears an uncanny resemblance, but claims he was not in the ghetto but at Hotel Polski. Well maybe that's because that photo was taken at Hotel Polski and not in the ghetto. Maybe it's an inserted photo.
