With the occupation of Poland in September 1939, several Nazi agencies, including the RSHA (Reichssicherheitshauptamt - Reich Security Main Office) and the Reich Office for the Consolidation of German Nationhood, started planning mass deportations of Jews and Poles from various regions of occupied Poland and areas of the Third Reich and the Protectorate, with the objective of settling ethnic Germans (Volksdeutsche) in their place.
