Professor B. K. Schultz is promoted from acting head to permanent chief of the RuSHA (Rasse- und Siedlungshauptamt-SS - SS Race and Settlement Main Office).

He decides on his own that his first task will be to investigate the question of Mischlinge, or quarter-Jews. Previously he had proposed they be sterilized, but that proves to be impractical.

Professor B.K. Schultz will write to Heinrich Himmler:

"It is proposed that: quarter-Jews should not be included in the same category as persons of German blood without exception, but that they should first undergo a racial classification.

Every quarter-Jew in whom Jewish racial characteristics are clearly prominent, as judged from external appearances, should be treated in the same way as half-Jews (i.e. as Jews)."

Himmler will decide that he likes this proposal and pass it along to Martin Bormann.
