Date: 21 Aug 1994 22:34:48 -0400 Lines: 40 Message-ID: <email@example.com> A contemporary document written by a Nazi official speaks of an order for the extermination of the Jews: I expect great things from your elasticity, and please don't come to me with complaints about contradictions in our economic policy. For you there is only one order, bring in workers from wherever you can find them. Recently they have taken away a non-insignificant portion of our old, protected Jewish workers. It is clear that the process of finding workers is made more difficult when, in the middle of this war-related jobs program, an order comes that all Jews are to be exterminated. [In German "alle Juden sind der Vernichtung anheim zu stellen", literally "All Jews are to be submitted to extermination."] The responsibility for this order does not rest with the administration of the General Government. This order for extermination of the Jews comes from higher authorities. We must only reconcile ourselves to its conclusions, and can merely inform the Federal authorities that the removal of those Jews capable of working has led to tremendous difficulties. Only recently I complained to State Secretary Ganzenmueller [top official in the Federal Transportation Ministry] that a huge building project in the General Government had come to a standstill, and that I could prove that this would not have happened had not the many thousands of Jews who were employed on that project been hauled away. Now an order has been issued saying that all Jews should be taken off of armaments work; I hope that this order will be repealed, if it has not already been repealed, for otherwise I see the situation as even worse.
