To Gruppenführer Heydrich:
Supplementing the task assigned to you by the decree of January 24,
1939, to solve the Jewish problem by means of emigration and evacuation
in the best possible way according to present conditions, I hereby charge
you to carry out preparations as regards organizational, financial, and
material matters for a total solution (Gesamtlösung) of the Jewish
question in all the territories of Europe under German occupation.
Where the competency of other central organizations touches on this
matter, these organizations are to collaborate.
I charge you further to submit to me as soon as possible a general plan
of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying
out the desired final solution (Endlösung) of the Jewish question.
