During a meeting of the National Socialist Party in Kiev, Reich Commissar for the Ukraine Erich Koch explains that the Germans are the master race who have come to the Ukraine to extract everything of possible value for the benefit of Germany.
According to notes from this meeting, Erich Koch says:
1. We are the master race and must govern hard but just....
2. I will draw the very last out of this country. I did not come to spread bliss. I have come to help the Fuehrer. The population must work, work, and work again ... for some people are getting excited that the population may not get enough to eat. The population cannot demand that. One has only to remember what our heroes were deprived of in Stalingrad ... We definitely did not come here to give out manna. We have come here to create the basis for victory.
3. We are a master race, which must remember that the lowliest German worker is racially and biologically a thousand times more valuable than the population here.
