The sufferings of the Russian people under Bolshevisim are indescribable.
This Jewish terrorism must be radically eliminated from all of Europe. That
is our historic task.
World Jewry will suffer a great catastrophe at the same time as Bolshevisim. The Feuhrer once more expressed his determination to clean up the Jews in Europe pitilessly. There must be no squeamish sentimentalism about it. The Jews have deserved the catastrophe that has now overtaken them. Their destruction will go hand in hand with the destruction of our enemies. We must hasten this process with cold ruthlessness. We shall thereby render an inestimable service to a humanity tormented for thousands of years by the Jews. This uncompromising anti-Semitic attitude must prevail among our own people despite all objectors. The Fuehrer express this idea vigorously and repeated it afterward to a group of officers who can put that in their pipes and smoke it.
Finally we talked about the Jewish question. Here the Fuehrer is as uncompromising as ever. The Jews must be got out of Europe, if necessary by applying the most brutal methods.
The procedure is a pretty barbaric one and not to be described here more definitely. Not much will remain of the Jews. On the whole it can be said that about 60 per cent of them will have to be liquidated whereas only 40 per cent can be used for forced labor.

The last quote is used on Nizkor's ridiculous 66 questions and answers page to refute revisionism (the second link above). It looks really convincing at first glance, but we have learnt to be suspicious. At Zündelsite, I found the preceding sentence which is dissimulated by Nizkor; in context, the passage looks quite different:
Aus dem Generalgouvernement werden jetzt, bei Lublin beginnend, die Juden nach dem Osten abgeschoben. Es wird hier ein ziemlich barbarisches und nicht näher zu beschreibendes Verfahren angewandt, und von den Juden selbst bleibt nicht mehr viel übrig. Im grossen und ganzen kann man wohl feststellen, dass 60 Prozent davon liquidiert werden müssen, während nur 40 Prozent in die Arbeit eingesetzt werden können... An den Juden wird ein Strafgericht vollzogen, das zwar barbarisch ist, das sie aber vollauf verdient haben
"Beginning in Lublin, the Jews will be deported from the General Government to the east. The procedure is a pretty barbaric one and not to be described here more definitely. Not much will remain of the Jews. On the whole it can be said that about 60 per cent of them will have to be liquidated whereas only 40 per cent can be used for forced labor... a tribunal is held over the Jews which may be barbaric, but which they totally deserve."
Thus the "procedure" explicitly refers to deportation. But what will "liquidated" mean? On the Zündelsite it is considered the entry might be forged, but I doubt it. I think the term can be explained in a different way. The Nazis referred to the dissolution of ghettos as "liquidation". It's like when you say a company has to be liquidated: It is made "liquid". Thus "60% will have to be liquidated" can simply mean "60% have to be thrown out (and brought to the East)". Then again, the last sentence seems to contradict this interpretation. But consider also that only a couple of weeks earlier Goebbels had noted:
Die Judenfrage muss jetzt im gesamteuropäischen Rahmen gelöst werden. Es gibt in Europa noch über 11 Millionen Juden. Sie müssen später einmal zuerst im Osten konzentriert werden. Eventuell kann man ihnen nach dem Kriege eine Insel, etwa Madagaskar, zuweisen.
(also on the Zündelsite)
"Die Jewish question must now be solved for all of Europe. There are still more than 11 million Jews in Europe. Later, they have to be preliminarily concentrated in the east. Possibly, an island can be assigned to them after the war, such as Madagascar." - my translation.
Normally, it is claimed the Nazis decided to exterminate the Jews when they realized the war wouldn't be won in the near future. But it is implausible to assume this assessment changed completely during the two weeks from 7th of March to 20th. And in his diary, Goebbels wouldn't have used camouflage terms.
Of course, those passages aren't exactly helpful to revisionists. On the other hand, the fact that Nizkor didn't quote the first sentence seems to indicate they, too, think it's not that clear.
What do you think?
