Adolf Hitler informs Czech foreign minister Chvalkovsy that "We are going to destroy the Jews - they are not going to get away with what they did on November 9, 1918. The day of reckoning has come."

This is a reference to the end of Germany's monarchy when Emperor Wilhelm II was dethroned in the November Revolution and the Weimar Republic was proclaimed by Philipp Scheidemann from a window of the Reichstag. Hitler complains, however, that in Czechoslovakia the Jews "continue to poison the people."

Chvalkovsy explains that there hasn't been enough people to organize the expulsion of all the Jews, but that his government will pursue a "solution to the Jewish Question."
