Unofficial translation from the German.

Any reference to "What is Scientology" is actually to the German counterpart "WAS IST SCIENTOLOGY?" published by New Era Publications International, Kopenhagen 1993. That means the page numbers given as references probably won't match your English language edition. English quotations have been translated from English to German back to English.
