Joseph Goebbels writes in his diary that Berlin Police Chief Wolf-Heinrich Graf von Helldorf has suggested that they "build a Jewish ghetto in Berlin. The rich Jews should pay for it themselves. That is correct. I support him in this."

As the chief of police in Berlin, Helldorf has been instrumental in the harassment and oppression of Jews in Germany's capital. He has also played a key role in organizing the Nazi pogroms that have taken place in Berlin in 1938.
