Baldur von Schirach, leader of the Hitler-Jugend (Hitler Youth) and Gauleiter of Vienna, gives a speech in Vienna in which he claims that the deportation of Jews to extermination camps in Poland is his contribution of European culture.

According to Baldur von Schirach:

"If I were to be accused of having deported tens of thousands of Jews from this city, once the European metropolis of Jewry, to the Eastern ghetto, I would have to reply, 'I see in that an active contribution to European culture.'"

He will only be sentenced to 20 years for crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal, however. This is probably because he is able to prove that he complains about the mistreatment of Jews and even falls out of favor with the Nazi leadership as a result. During his war crimes trial it is revealed that Baldur von Schirach's anti-Semitism has developed solely or mostly from reading Henry Ford's anti-Semitic book The International Jew.
