           Documentary Memorandum for the Fuehrer
Concerning: Jewish Possessions in France

In compliance with the order of the Fuehrer for protection
of Jewish, cultural possessions, a great number of Jewish
dwellings remained unguarded. Consequently, many furnishings
have disappeared, because a guard could, naturally, not be
posted. In the whole East, the administration has found
terrible conditions of living quarters, and the chances of
procurement are so limited that it is not practical to
procure any more. Therefore I beg the Fuehrer to permit the
seizure of all Jewish home furnishings of Jews in Paris, who
have fled, or will leave shortly, and that of Jews living in
all parts of the occupied West, to relieve the shortage of
furnishings in the administration in the East.

2. A great number of leading Jews were, after a short
examination in Paris, again released. The attempts on the
lives of members of the armed forces have not stopped, on
the contrary they continue. This reveals an unmistakable
plan to disrupt the German-French cooperation, to force
Germany to retaliate, and, with this, evoke a new defense on
the part of the French against Germany. I suggest to the
Fuehrer that, instead of executing 100 Frenchmen, we
substitute 100 Jewish bankers, lawyers, etc. It is the Jews
in London and New York who incite the French communists to
commit acts of violence, and it seems only fair that the
members of this race should pay for this. It is not the
little Jews, but the leading Jews in France, who should be
held responsible. That would tend to awaken the Anti-Jewish
