(Order Police) Battalion 314 reported the shooting of 25 Jews;

1942

Martin Bormann makes his views with respect to the
population of captured Eastern Territories in a memo to
Rosenberg:

     "The Slavs are to work for us. In so far as we don't
     need them, they may die. Therefore compulsory
     vaccination and German health services are superfluous.
     The fertility of the Slavs is undesirable. They may use
     contraceptives or practice abortion, the more the
     better. Education is dangerous. It is enough if they
     can count up to 100. At best an education which
     produces useful stooges for us is admissible. Every
     educated person is a future enemy. Religion we leave to
     them as a means of diversion. As for food they won't
     get any more than is necessary. We are the masters, we
     come first." (R-36)(NCA II, 904)
