Prinz Philipp von Hessen, German ambassador to Austria, holds a telephone conversation with Hermann Goering in which the former relates that large numbers of Jews in Austria are now trying to emigrate to Poland to escape the expected Nazi persecution.

Hessen suggests that it would be good to leave the borders open for a while in order to get rid of them and Göring responds:

"But not with foreign currencies ...

The Jews can go, but they have to leave their money behind for us since they originally stole it from us anyway."
