To The Chief of the Security Service, SS Gruppenfuehrer Heydrich
Complementing the task that was assigned to you on 24 January 1939, which dealt with arriving at - through furtherance of emigration and evacuation - a solution of the Jewish problem, as advantageously as possible, I hereby charge you with making all necessary preparations in regard to organizational and financial matters for bringing about a complete solution of the Jewish question in the German sphere of influence in Europe.
Whenever other governmental agencies are involved, these are to cooperate with you.
I charge you furthermore to send me, before long, an over-all plan concerning the organizational, factual, and material measures necessary for the accomplishment of the desired solution of the Jewish question.
