I scanned the revolutionary events of history and… [asked] myself: against which racial element in Germany can I unleash my propaganda of hate with the greatest prospects of success? …I came to the conclusion that a campaign against the Jews would be as popular as it would be successful.

The Nazis needed to work out who was Jewish. Where were you on the Aryan/non-Aryan spectrum of facials features, eyes and hair?
