Abstract This document sets forth certain of Hitler's ideas concerning "Problem Poland." The gist of the material is that Hitler is not ready to force a solution but that he is interested, when the political conditions are favorable, in a solution that essentially takes Poland off the map and out of the political calculus. In this regard, "Evacuation and resettlement are questions that remain open." This document is a either a first typewritten copy or a very good carbon copy made from a handwritten original.
