The International Institute for Holocaust Research

Between 1939 and 1941 a number of Nazi Germany officials started discussing plans for deporting Jews out of Germany and the territories it had occupied. These proposals included the October 1939 "Nisko Plan", the May 1940 "Madagascar Plan" and an October 1940 plan to deport Jews from the regions of Baden and Palatinate (Pfalz) to France. In some cases the plans were never carried out; in other cases, they were carried out only partially.
