’The Nuremberg Interviews’ by Leon Goldensohn (a psychiatrist at the main Nuremberg trial), pp. 193-194:
(Majdanek is still considered an "extermination camp" by the exterminationists.)[Joachim von Ribbentrop:]
"The first I ever heard of exterminations was late in 1944, when the Russians recaptured the region in which Camp Majdanek was installed. They spread the story of Jew exterminations after they captured Majdanek. I went to Hitler and asked him. He said it was enemy propaganda.”
David Irving - Hitler's War (p. 453):
(David Irving interviewed Heinrich Heim in the 1960s.)"In most circumstances Hitler was a pragmatist. It would have been unlike him to sanction the use of scarce transport space to move millions of Jews east for no other purpose than liquidating them there; nor would he willingly destroy manpower, for which his industry was crying out. Heinrich Heim recalls one exasperated comment by Hitler, told that Allied radio had broadcast an announcement that the Jews were being exterminated: ‘Really, the Jews should be grateful to me for wanting nothing more than a bit of hard work from them."
David Irving - Hitler's War (p. 754):
(Hitler’s reaction to the propaganda reports about Majdanek was described by Sonnleitner; by Heinz Lorenz (CSDIC interrogation); and by Helmut Sündermann, diary, Oct 27, 1944.)"At the war conference later that day Press Chief Otto Dietrich showed Hitler an English newspaper which reported a claim by Moscow that 1,500,000 people had been liquidated in a concentration camp at Majdanek, which the Red Army had overrun, near Lublin; by way of evidence, there was a photograph of neat stacks of combs. A hush fell on the war conference. Hitler angrily laid the newspaper aside: ‘That’s the “hacked-off hands” again – pure enemy propaganda!’ (He told Sonnleitner after the conference that Allied propaganda had claimed in 1944 that German troops marching into Belgium had cut off babies’ hands and hung the children upside down in church bells as clappers.)"

[Hans Frank (the governor-general of Poland):]
"On 7 February 1944 I succeeded in being received by Adolf Hitler personally - I might add that throughout the war he received me three times only. In the presence of Bormann I put the question to him: 'My Fuehrer, rumors about the extermination of the Jews will not be silenced. They are heard everywhere. No one is allowed in anywhere. Once I paid a surprise visit to Auschwitz in order to see the camp, but I was told that there was an epidemic in the camp and my car was diverted before I got there. Tell me, My Fuehrer, is there anything in it?' The Fuehrer said, 'You can very well imagine that there are executions going on-of insurgents. Apart from that I do not know anything. Why don't you speak to Heinrich Himmler about it?' And I said. 'Well, Himmler made a speech to us in Krakow and declared in front of all the people whom I had officially called to the meeting that these rumors about the systematic extermination of the Jews were false; the Jews were merely being brought to the East.' Thereupon the Fuehrer said, 'Then you must believe that.'"

(In the 'Nuremberg Trial Proceedings' it reads ambiguously "they are being cared for there" but "they are being housed there" fits better to "vorläufig sitzt sie da untergebracht" that you can hear from the voice recording)[Hans Lammers (Chief of the Reich Chancellery):]
"Finally, however, in 1943, rumors cropped up that Jews were being killed. I had no jurisdiction in this field; it was merely that I occasionally received complaints and on the basis of these complaints I investigated the rumors. But, as far as I could tell, at any rate, these rumors always proved to be only rumors. Every one said he had heard it from somebody else and nobody wanted to make a definite statement. I am, in fact, of the opinion that these rumors were based mostly on foreign broadcasts and that the people just did not want to say from where they had the information. That caused me once more to undertake an investigation of this matter. First of all, since I, for my part, could not initiate investigations of matters under Himmler’s jurisdiction, I addressed myself to Himmler once again. Himmler denied any legal killings and told me, with reference to the order from the Führer, that it was his duty to evacuate the Jews and that during such evacuations, which also involved old and sick people, of course there were cases of death, there were accidents, there were attacks by enemy aircraft. He added too, that there were revolts, which of course he had to suppress severely and with bloodshed, as a warning. For the rest, he said that these people were being accommodated in camps in the East. He brought out a lot of pictures and albums and showed me the work that was being done in these camps by the Jews and how they worked for the war needs, the shoemakers shops, tailors shops, and so forth."
"Nevertheless, I once again reported this matter to the Führer, and on this occasion he gave me exactly the same reply which I had been given by Himmler. He said, “I shall later on decide where these Jews will be taken and in the meantime they are being housed there."
Trials of War Criminals Before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals Under Control Council Law No. 10, Nuernberg, October 1946-April 1949, Volume 13, p. 416 (https://books.google.com/books?id=gcIcA ... &lpg=PA416):
"[Hans Lammers (Chief of the Reich Chancellery):]
[H]e [Hitler] said, pretty clearly, that he wished that an end might be put to all these Jewish affairs, once and for all. He added that after the war he would make a final decision as to where the Jews were to go. I remember he said that then there would be enough room in the East or in other places where the Jews could be taken."
"Q. How did you interpret Hitler's remark that after the end of the war he would decide where the Jews were to go?
A. I thought it was a reference to the various projects concerning the setting up of a separate territory for the Jews, a sort of autonomous Jewish state, or reservation, or whatever you want to call it. There was a lot of talk about such projects at the time."
’Nuremberg Diary’ by Gustave Gilbert (a psychologist at the main Nuremberg trial), p. 260:
[Joachim von Ribbentrop:] "Tell me — I wasn't in court on Monday. — Did Hoess actually say — that Hitler had ordered the mass murders?"
[Gustave Gilbert:] "He said that Himmler gave him a direct Fuhrerbefehl for extermination of the Jews in 1941."
[Joachim von Ribbentrop:] "In 1941? — did he say that? — in '41? — in '41? — did he really say that?"
[Gustave Gilbert:] "Of course he did. You might have known; the whole Party leadership was talking about solving the Jewish problem — a problem that they themselves had made acute."
[Joachim von Ribbentrop:] "But Hitler only spoke of transporting them to the East or to Madagascar."
[Joachim von Ribbentrop:] "I thought even up to now that perhaps Himmler, late in the war, under some pretext — . But '41, he said? My God! My God!"
[Gustave Gilbert:] "What did you expect? You were all making reckless statements about solving the Jewish problem. There is no reasonable limit to human hatred when you have whipped it up to such a fury as you Nazi leaders did."
[Joachim von Ribbentrop:] "But we never dreamed it would end like this. We only thought they had too much influence — that we could solve the problem with a quota system or that we would transport them to the East or Madagascar. — You know, I didn't know anything about the exterminations — until the Majdanek affair came out in '44 — My God!"
Here is also what Hermann Goering thought (not included in the video):
Trial of the major war criminals before the International Military Tribunal, Vol. 9 - Thursday, 21 March 1946 - Morning Session (https://avalon.law.yale.edu/imt/03-21-46.asp):
SIR DAVID MAXWELL-FYFE: Will you please answer my question. Do you still say neither Hitler nor you knew of the policy to exterminate the Jews?
GOERING: As far as Hitler is concerned, I have said I do not think so. As far as I am concerned, I have said that I did not know, even approximately, to what extent these things were taking place.
SIR DAVID MAXWELL-FYFE: You did not know to what degree, but you knew there was a policy that aimed at the extermination of the Jews?
GOERING: No, a policy of emigration, not liquidation of the Jews. I knew only that there had been isolated cases of such perpetrations.
SIR DAVID MAXWELL-FYFE: The Fuehrer, at any rate, must have had full knowledge of what was happening with regard to concentration camps, the treatment of the Jews, and the treatment of the workers, must he not?
GOERING: I already mentioned it as my opinion that the Fuehrer did not know about details in concentration camps, about atrocities as described here. As far as I know him, I do not believe he was informed. But insofar as he ...
SIR DAVID MAXWELL-FYFE: I am not asking about details; I am asking about the murder of four or five million people. Are you suggesting that nobody in power in Germany, except Himmler and perhaps Kaltenbrunner, knew about that?
GOERING: I am still of the opinion that the Fuehrer did not know about these figures.
