"Given that the involvement of the service II-112 in the field of education (Schuling) remains very intense, it appears necessary... to name a scientific assistant to prepare the documentation." (38)
But no follow-up was given. Let us note that in August 1938 Hagen prepared two lectures for the Foreign Policy School of the Party, but that the text was presented by Knochen in Hagen's absence. Knochen was the assistant of Six. It is evident that the collaboration between the sections of the II-1 was close.

It is instructive to point out that the SD's manner of bringing up and treating the Jewish problem was in clear and violent contrast to the vulgar and pornographic anti Jewish propaganda of Streicher and his monthly, "Der Stürmer" ("the Assaillant" [sic]). The team which was educating and cultivating itself to later assume a central role in the "final solution" developed its capabilities by the imposition of a certain scientific discipline. This divergence between Heydrich and Streicher came to light in May 1938 concerning a foul anti-Jewish illustrated which Streicher destined for young people: "Der Giftpilz" ("The Poisonous Mushroom") (CDXXXVII-8, 9, 10). Streicher gave Heimer, the editor of the "Stürmer", the reponsibility [sic] of taking the necessary steps to obtain a favourable report on the publication from the SD. Hagen, Six and Heydrich decided that a favourable opinion on their behalf was inadmissible. But they consented to receive Heimer to show him the work that Eichmann was accomplishing within the Jewish community in Vienna. In a letter which Hagen wrote to Eichmann on June 28, 1938, he pointed out the ineptitudes of the editor of the "Stürmer.
" Writing to his "Dear Adolph," Hagen laughed at the horrified indignation of Heimer confronted with the revival of Jewish religious sentiment. "When I hear such a thing, I hold onto my head: but what do they have to do then! Perhaps the "Stürmer" will contribute in bringing about the radical solution of shortening them by a head to prevent their having the joyful thought of recognizing themselves as Jews again." (39)

7. The SD and the Zionist Emigration

The Gestapo and the SD imagined that the best way to develop the massive emigration of the Jews was to favourize [sic] Zionist emigration. According to the statistics furnished in March 1943 to Himmler, only 15% of the 353,000 emigrants from the Reich went to Palestine. But it was anticipated that the Zionist movement would be able to encourage the wave of emigration.

We may cite on this subject a characteristic note of the Gestapo. This note dating from February 20, 1935 (CDXXXVII-5), informed all branches of the Gestapo that the Jewish philosopher, Martin Buber, was
