FOUR YEARS IN HOLLAND, 1944 [Vier Jahre in den Niederlanden] Reichminister Seyss-Inquart. [Page 10] We neither will oppress this land and its people imperialistically nor will we impose on them our political convictions. We will bring this about in no other way--only through our deportment and our example. ******* [Page 144] Several times it has been held against me that I have let National Socialism come to the fore in all phases in public life. As far as I am concerned that is no reproach. It is a historical mission which I have to fulfill here. ******* [Page 124] I will give my instructions. They must be executed by all. In the present situation a refusal to execute could be regarded only as sabotage. It is also clear, now more than ever, that every resistance which is directed against this fight for existence must be suppressed. Some time ago the representatives of the churches had written to the Wehrmacht commander and to me and they presented their conception against the executions of death sentences which the Wehrmacht commander announced in the meantime. To this I can only say the following: The moment in which our men, father and sons with iron determination look towards their fate in the east and unflinchingly and steadfastly perform their highest pledge, it is unbearable to tolerate conspiracies whose goal is to weaken the rear of this eastern front. Whoever dares this must be annihilated. We must be severe and become even more severe against our opponents, this is the command of a relentless sequence of events and for us perhaps humanly hard, but our holy duty. We remain human because we do not torture our opponents, we remain by annihilating them. ******* [Page 167] I have given orders to suppress all appearances with a severeness corresponding to the brutality of the crime. If in connection with these measures Dutch citizens are affected and have to undergo difficulties and limitations of special nature, then they have to seek the cause therefore solely in these eruptions of the anarchistic mental attitude of a few culprits and the just-as-criminal-tolerance or apathy within their own circles. ******* The Jews are the enemy of national socialism and the national socialistic Reich. From the moment of their emancipation, their methods were directed to the annihilation of the common and moral worth of the German people and to replace national and responsible ideology with international Nihilism. The fatal meaning of Judaism became completely clear to the German people during the years of the world war. It was really they, who stuck the knife in the back of the German army which broke the resistance of the Germans, and in the year 1918, it was they who wanted to dissolve and decompose all national tradition and also moral and religious beliefs of the German people. The Jews for us are not Dutchmen. They are those enemies, with whom we can neither come to an armistice nor to peace. This applies here, if you wish, for the duration of the occupation. Do not expect an order from me which stipulates this, except regulations concerning. police matters. We will beat the Jews wherever we meet them and those who join them must bear the consequences. The Fuehrer declared that the Jews have played their final act in Europe, and therefore they played their final act.
