payment for which was to consist in the delivery of arms. Hagen contacted the Ministry of the Economy on this subject (CDXXIV-8, p. 16). In July he noticed that the Greeks were avoiding the issue, probably following English intervention (May 19; June 2, 12, 17 and 29; July 5, 6, 8). This correspondance [sic] reveals that the Greek fleet often participated in the clandestine transport of Jews.

In the course of 1939, the emigration became increasingly difficult. Hagen noted on June 15, 1939 (52):
"Promote" emigration to the maximum possible. The emigrations are becoming more and more difficult... Promote all plans for emigration no matter where."
In March 1939, Hagen gave Eichmann the responsibility (53) of assembling a documentation for a report to Heydrich on a plan for the installation of Jews in Madagascar. He presented it as having already been debated between France and Poland. This report was to be compiled in collaboration with the section for Jewish affairs of the Gestapo (II B4), and it revealed that
"the Jewish question cannot be resolved on the basis admitted until present (financial difficulties, etc.) and that it is necessary to put a foreign policy solution on the agenda... (Madagascar Plan)."
A reference to this non-dated note was made in another of March 24, 1938 (CDXXXVII-28), from Dannecker. It was drafted in Vienna, apparently in Eichmann's presence, to recall among other projects the one in question.

10. The Men of the II-112 Confronted with the Jews

In 1939 Six and Hagen, employing the pseudonym of "Dieter Schwartz," put out (testimony of Wisliceny, LXXXVIII-67) a brochure entitled "World Judaism," which appeared in the series of treatises published by the SS. Beginning with the thesis of the Jewish will to dominate the world, they analyzed the system of Jewish political, social, financial, national and international organizations. They finished up with Zionism which they considered incapable of bringing about a real solution, given the number of Jews in the world and the small territory of Palestine. "Dieter Schwartz" revealed in this context that the Jews themselves desired a Jewish State only as the center of a Jewish government power which would protect them in the activities that dispersed they would continue to develop. "Dieter Schwartz" thus denounced Zionism. The brochure concluded, nevertheless, by emphasizing that the only thing that interested Germany was to remove the Jews from its territory at any price. Thus the authors did not exclude, without however saying so explicitly (they did not bring up the question of anti-Jewish measures), that if Palestine could not contain the entire population of Jews in the world, it would suffice to absorb that of the Reich.
