November 5

1937

On 5th November, 1937, the Polish and German Governments
issued identical declarations concerning the treatment of minorities.
The declaration concludes with the following passage: 

'The above principles should in no way affect the duties of the
minorities, of complete loyalty to the State to which they belong.
They have been inspired by a desire to secure for the minorities
equitable conditions of life, and harmonious collaboration with the
nationals of the State in which they live -- a state of affairs which
will contribute to the progressive strengthening of the friendly and
good-neighbourly relations between Poland and Germany.' (Trial of
German Major War Criminals, Part 6, p. 213)

1940

Hermann Goering issues an order to the Chief of the Military
Administration Paris and `Einsatzstab Rosenberg' concerning
the plunder of Jewish-owned works of art. The order directs
that Hitler shall receive those works of art he has reserved
for himself, and that he shall receive "those art objects
which serve to the completion of the Reich Marshal's
collection;" other works will be shipped to Germany for use
in German museums. (141-PS) (NCA II, 439-40)

1941

Martin Bormann issued instructions prohibiting decent
burials with religious ceremonies for Russian Prisoners of
War (D-163). (NCA II, 903)
