Note 030

30 See Frank's statement to the conference of department heads on 6th November 1940, IMT, XXIX, 2233-PS. In this connection see also Broszat, Nationalsozialistische Polenpolitik, which says that the Government General 'remained from the point of view of constitutional and international law outside the German Reich, a "secondary" German "nation" without formal statehood and with extra-territorial status with respect to the Reich. Its inhabitants were stateless but of Polish nationality. This ad hoc structure was to facilitate the country's rule subject to only the most minimal legal obligations.'

From Chapter 17, Hans Frank , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest
