Adolph Hitler on his Plans
to Exterminate the Jews

"[In the event of war] the result will not be the bolshevisation of the earth, and thus the victory for Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe."

From "The Speeches of Adolph Hitler, April 1922 - August 1939," Norman H. Baynes (editor), London, 1942, volume 1, page 741, text taken from the authorized English translation published in pamphlet form, Berlin, in February 1939. Quoted in "Auschwitz and the Allies," by Martin Gilbert, Holt Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1981, page 13.
Or perhaps:

"...and we say that the war will not end as the Jews imagine it will, namely with the uprooting of the Aryans, but the result of this war will be the complete annihilation of the Jews.


"Now for the first time they will not bleed other people to death, but for the first time the old Jewish law of An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, will be applied.


"And the further this war spreads, the further will spread this fight against the world of the [Jew], and they will be used as food for every prison camp, and [ ] in every family, which will have it explained to it why [ ], and the hour will come when the enemy of all times, or at least of the last thousand years, will have played his part to the end."
