"In an entry in Goebbels' Diary regarding the beginning of Operation
Reinhard, ten days after the killings started in Belzec, on March 27,
1942, he wrote:

	Beginning with Lublin, the Jews in the General Government
	are now being evacuated eastward. The procedure is a pretty
	barbaric one and not to be described here more definitely.
	Not much will remain of the Jews. On the whole it can be said
	about 60 percent of them will have to be liquidated whereas
	only about 40 percent can be used for forced labor.

	The former Gauleiter of Vienna [Globocnik], who is to carry
	this measure through, is doing it with considerable
	circumspection and according to a method that does not attract
	too much attention. Fortunately, a whole series of
	possibilities presents itself for us in wartime that
	would be denied us in peacetime. We shall have to profit by
	this. The ghettos that will be emptied in the streets of the
	General Government will now be refilled with Jews thrown out
	of the Reich. This process is to be repeated from time to
	time." <1>
