Professor B.K. Schultz, chief of the RuSHA (Rasse- und Siedlungshauptamt-SS - SS Race and Settlement Main Office), has been investigating the question of Mischlinge, or quarter-Jews. Previously he had proposed they be sterilized, but that proves to be impractical. Now he has a new proposal for Heinrich Himmler.
Professor B.K. Schultz writes:
"It is proposed that: quarter-Jews should not be included in the same category as persons of German blood without exception, but that they should first undergo a racial classification.
Every quarter-Jew in whom Jewish racial characteristics are clearly prominent, as judged from external appearances, should be treated in the same way as half-Jews (i.e. as Jews)."
Himmler will decide that he likes this proposal and pass it along to Martin Bormann and enclose this note:
"Dear Martin, I refer to the brief conversation we had about part-Jews. I am enclosing a proposal from my collaborator, the well-known race-investigator, Professor B.K. Schultz, the Chief of the Race Bureau of the RuSHA. I regard such investigations as being absolutely necessary, perhaps not only in quarter-Jews but also in persons with even less Jewish blood.
We must follow a similar procedure to that which is used in breeding plants and animals, but this must remain between us. For several generations (at least 3 or 4), the offspring of such mixed families must be racially examined by independent institutes, and, if racial inferiority is shown, they must be sterilized, and thus prevented from passing on their traits further. ... Perhaps you will let me know what you think about this. Heil Hitler! Your HH."
