The Afro-American (February 6, 1943)
In a move interpreted as initiating a campaign of extermination, Germany’s Gestapo has ordered immediate registration of all colored people, mulattoes and quadroons in German territory, according to the Office of War Information.
The decree, issued by Gestapo Chief Heinrich Himmler, demands that results of the registration be turned over to the Office of Reich Security, the agency which handles Jewish deportation and property confiscation.
The OWI quoted a Swedish newspaper as reporting:
There can be no doubt what will happen after their registration, as colored people are treated as all “inferior races.”
