Eichmann was in charge of all the details of transportation for the emigration and deportation of Jews. He later boasted that he would leap into his grave laughing because he had a part in the deaths of millions of Jews. These two men and others like them were given the assignment of coming up with a comprehensive plan to keep the Jews from ever troubling Germany again. These men were to devise a “final solution” to the Jewish question. Before the Russian campaign, Germany’s policy regarding Jews had been forcible evacuation to Poland, where they were cruelly mistreated.

Hitler was preparing Germany for the war he had already decided to launch. He had begun his Four-Year Plan for building a military machine that would restore German honor and give the Aryan people the Lebensraum—the living space—he felt they deserved. Hitler had long believed—and had written in Mein Kampf—that Germany was entitled to expand its borders to fill the land to the east (Poland and Russia). Acquiring Lebensraum meant war, and war required preparation. Weapons and equipment had to be built, food had to be grown and stored, new forms of fuel had to be created.

People would be outraged at gross mistreatment of their neighbors. They would have to be desensitized. Resistance was certain to occur; some would refuse to go along with the program. They would have to be brought in line by force. Legal Basis When he became chancellor on January 30, 1933, Hitler immediately began the process that would eventually result in the creation of a network of over one thousand concentration camps.
