OK, this is not impossible, but the context suggests that Goebbels spoke of the Wannsee Conference. And if a "Madagascar solution" was really contemplated at this time by Hitler and/or other National Socialist leaders, isn't it surprising that there is no mention of it in Kempner's copy ?
Yes, the context suggests that. But alas, it only suggests that.
No surprise a Madagascar solution was still contemplated at that time but however not mentioned in Kempner's copy of the protocol. Madagascar was only a possible destination among others after all. In a later entry in his diaries, Goebbels said that Hitler "would much prefer to resettle
(aussiedeln) them in central Africa
" (May 30, 1942). The question was still open at that time and remained so until the final defeat of the Third Reich. No need to mention Madagascar more than any other suitable place out of Europe in the Wannsee Protocol. The final destination of Europe's Jews was a postwar question in the event of a German victory. The Wannsee conference dealt only with the wartime preparation of the final solution to the Jewish question in Europe.
IMO, if Kempner's copy was a forgery, it would be an exterminationist document full of unambiguous murderous/genocidal words. I don't think that any Zionist, Allied or Soviet forger would have written such a nice piece of revisionist writing. The Nazi final solution of the Jewish question was never implemented. It was only prepared through the uprooting of a number of Jews and their deportation to the East, as the Kempner's copy unambiguously explained. Kempner's copy of the Wannsee Protocol indeed stated that: "this operation
(i.e. the "evacuation of the Jews to the East
") should be regarded only as a provisional option
, [...] in view of the coming final solution of the Jewish question
." Couldn't be more revisionist than that...
