Not many countries opened their doors to the Jews. ibid.
It was decided that all the Jews in Europe would be gassed. ibid.
On the platform to greet them: an SS reception committee. New arrivals were divided into two columns: a quick medical inspection by the camp doctor – those fits to work were put to one side. In the other column all the rest. ibid.

Along with their anti-Semitism went the belief that violence was an indispensable part of the political process. The Nazis: A Warning From History: Helped into Power, BBC 1997
In the mid-1920s the Nazi party was small but radical. Their party programme promised that if the Nazis came to power, German Jews would be stripped of German citizenship and could even be expelled from the country. ibid.
Himmler now announced an extension of the cleansing in the East. Since the Nazis thought that every single Jew was a supporter of Bolshevism they now said that every single Jew was a military threat. So women and children in the newly conquered territories were killed as well. The Nazis: A Warning From History: The Road to Treblinka
Thousands of Jews emigrated from Germany during the 1930s realising that there could never be a fair or safe place for them in Germany society while the Nazis ruled. The Nazis: A Warning From History: Chaos and Consent

If there are decent Jews ... First degree exempted will be sterilised; no more children and eventually no more mixed blood once and for all. ibid.
For perspective – we have already been using sterilisation for mentally defectives since 1939 in our T-4 programme. ibid. Eichmann
Death is the most reliable form of sterilisation. ibid. Heydrich
Deal with the reality of the Jew and the world will applaud us. ibid. Stuckart
There are no shortages of meat hooks on which to hang enemies of the state. ibid. Heydrich to Stuckart

Langer believed that Hitler found a way to deal with the terrible psychological consequences of his perversion by adapting a political ideology which was a prevalent and powerful part of mainstream culture – Anti-Semitism. Timewatch: Inside the Mind of Adolf Hitler, BBC 1995
Marriages between Jews and Germans of Germany or related blood are forbidden. Hermann Goering

They should take care. One day we’ll run out of patience. Then we’ll shut those lying cheeky Jewish mouths. Joseph Goebbels
If the Jewish newspapers think they can intimidate us with their hidden threats, they’d better watch out. Our patience has its limits. One day, we’ll shut their dirty, lying Jewish mouths! Joseph Goebbels
It would have been unwise to tell the Jews what we had planned for them before we assumed power. Joseph Goebbels
Judaism is a manifestation of a disease which is catching. Germany at least does not intend to bow to his Jewish threat. She is carrying out a radical extreme – exclusion – of the Jews. Joseph Goebbels
We have German theatre, German films, a German press, a German literature, German art, and German broadcasting. The objection that was often raised against us in the past – it is not feasible to remove Jews from the arts and from cultural life because there were too many of them and that we’d be unable to fill all the vacant positions – all this has been brilliantly proved wrong. Joseph Goebbels
