Zionist interests wanted middle class Jews that could pay money to come to Palestine instead of poor Jews.

Word on the Poland streets was that if Hitler was left in power he would eventually end up attacking Poland. So many leaders were for a preemptive attack to over take the East Prussia region of Germany. The only thing stopping an invasion was that Poland believed Germany had been amassing stock piles of weapons which was not true as of yet, and doubts in their own military prowess along with the costs of the conflict in the time of the Great Depression. Considering the situation Moltke’s assessment sent to the Nazi government was fifty percent chance of a Polish invasion.

This was found out by Cohen and Arlosoroff separately after returning to Germany from Palestine. Jews that had payed the fee were also being turned back at the border.

The deal was revoked by Hans Hartenstein since the Zionist’s had promised that this deal would increase German exports. With Jews in Palestine taking up boycott against Germany this was not the case.

Nazis had also already reduced the amount of the exchange to 2/3rds the required amount to immigrate to Palestine. This was due to the world wide boycotts which the Nazis saw to be part of the Jewish conspiracy which the Zionists could call off at any time.

Also at the meeting Schacht dropped the bomb - Germany was running out of finances and would soon be defaulting on all external loans. Roosevelt’s response was “Serves the Wall Street bankers right!”. Hull was more concerned with this news and the affects that it would have on the depression ravaged American economy.

Schacht also met with President of RCA David Sarnoff and other prominent Jewish group heads including Stephen Wise. Schacht repeated the Nazi rhetoric that what was happening inside of Germany was not the concern of foreigners. The talks broke down and went nowhere - especially seeing that the Jews knew that the boycott was crippling Germany’s economy.

When Schacht was leaving he was contacted by James McDonald on behalf of the Foreign Policy Association. McDonald stated that France was talking about invading Germany and dividing up the country if the Jewish persecution continued. The information was relayed to Hitler after Schacht was back on the boat to Germany.
