At a rally in the Schlageterhalle of Königsberg, Adolf Hitler states his willingness to let the Jews under Nazi control emigrate to other nations. His statement is in response to the Évian Conference, called by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt to deal with the growing problem of Jewish refugees.

Adolf Hitler says:

"We shall deal with these incorrigible opponents with the normal means of our state. I can only hope and expect that the other world, which has such deep sympathy for these criminals, will at least be be generous enough to convert this sympathy into practical aid.

We, on our part, are ready to put all these criminals at the disposal of these countries, for all I care, even on luxury ships."

This would be consistent with the early Nazi goal of simply eliminating Jews from Europe, not necessarily eliminating Jews from existence. However, the conference proves to be a failure because neither the United States nor Britain is willing to accept more Jewish refugees. So Hitler's apparent willingness to just let massive numbers of Jews leave is never put to the test.
