Commander of the Security Police and the SD Einsatzkommando 3

Kovno, 1.December.1941

Reich Secret Document

.. . .I confirm today that Einsatzkommando 3 has achieved the goal of solving
the Jewish problem in Lithuania: There are no more Jewish in Lithuania, apart
from working Jews and their families.

I wanted to eliminate the working Jews and their families as well, but the
Civil Administration and the Wehrmacht attacked me most sharply and issued a
prohibition against having these Jews and their families shot.
