Theodor Dannecker, an official with the Reich Main Security Office (RHSA) writes a memo in which he argues that there are now so many Jews in German-controlled territory that "solving the Jewish Problem through emigration has become impossible."

Adolf Hitler continues to favor shipping all Jews to Madagascar, but that plan will have to be scrapped soon because it cannot be done without defeating Britain.

As one of Adolf Eichmann's most ruthless and efficient assistants, Dannecker will bear primary responsibility for a significant percentage of all the deaths that occur during the Holocaust.

After Hungary is occupied by Germany, for example, Theodor Dannecker will take the lead in ensuring that over 500,000 Jews are deported and almost immediately gassed in Auschwitz — all despite knowing by this point that the war is lost.
