Letter from Generalkommisar for white Russia, Kube, to Reichkommisar
for the Ostland, Lohse, 31 July 1942
['The Good Old Days' - E. Klee, W. Dressen, V. Riess, The Free Press, 
NY, 1988, p. 180-181]
During the course of extensive discussions with SS-Brigadefuehrer Zenner 
and the very competent Leiter of the SD, SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Dr.
Strauch, it was established that we have liquidated about 55,000 Jews
in the past ten weeks...

Naturally the SD and I would prefer to eliminate the Jews in the
Generalbezirk of white Russia once and for all as soon as the Jews are
no longer needed by the Wehrmacht for economic reasons. For the time
being, the Wehrmacht's requirements, as the principle employer of
Jewish labor, are being taken into account.
