'The Herr Reich Foreign Minister today instructed me over the telephone to speed up as much as possible the evacuation of the Jews from the various parts of Europe. ... After a short presentation on the progress of present evacuation of the Jews from Slovakia, Croatia, Rumania and the occupied territories, the Reich Foreign Minister ordered us to approach the Bulgarians, Hungarian and Danish governments in order to set in train the evacuation of the Jews from these countries' (IMT, XIX, 3688-PS).
