(Page 55) Immediately after the victory in France the Jewish Sub-Section III of the German Division [Judenreferat III der Abteilung Deutschland] of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs -- more precisely Legationsrat Rademacher -- proposed a plan (Nuremberg Doc NG 5764) that had already been considered in regard to Poland though on a far less grandiose scale. On 3 June 1940 Rademacher suggested three possibilities in regard to the 'precise definition of Germany's basic war aims': (a) the deportation of all Jews from Europe, (b) the separation of eastern Jews from western Jews -- the former (to whose regenerative powers and devotion to the Talmud the Jewish intelligentsia owed their continuing existence) to remain as hostages in German hands (possibly in Lublin?) in order to tie the hands of the American Jews and the latter to be deported from Europe (possibly Madagascar?), and (c) the establishment of a Jewish National Home in Palestine (danger of a second Rome?)' [Nuremberg Doc, NG 5764]. Apparently the RSHA started preparatory work on the Madagascar project almost immediately, for on 24 June Heydrich asked Ribbentrop to let him know about 'any impending discussions on the subject of the solution of the Jewish problem' in case 'the Ministry of Foreign Affairs ought to know about them'.
It seems that there were about three and a quarter million Jews in occupied territories and emigration wasn't a solution any longer so some kind of _territorial_ solution would have to be found. [Page 56] . . . Rademacher's plan, when worked out in greater detail, envisaged France handing over Madagascar as part of the peace treaty, and evacuating and compensating the French inhabitants. That part of the island not needed by Germany as a military base would then become a vast ghetto of four million Jews, administered by a police governor appointed by Himmler -- . . . . We find in John Weiss, _Ideology of Death, Why the Holocaust Happened_, Pub: Ivan Dee, 1996, on page 329: . . .the Madagascar Plan was a familiar idea to nineteenth-century anti-Semites, who had suggested that European Jewry be shipped there and pay for the privilege. Once there, according to pre-Nazi anti-Semites, they were to be surrounded with naval forces to prevent escape; some suggested that any Jews found in Europe afterward be shot; others wanted yellow fever introduced to hasten their demise. In a news conference in February 1939, Rosenberg suggested the Jews be sent there, and in a news conference that summer, not secret, said that in the "wild island" with its "deadly climate" . . . "the obnoxious Jewish race will find itself isolated in a reservation . . . from where there is but one exit--death." *********************** If you are going to argue a point David don't expect others to supply you with basic information concerning your own argument.
