The 1944 report, titled '"Statistics, Media and Organizations of Jewry in the United States and Canada"',  was prepared by Heinz Kloss, who handled a variety of north American projects for the Third Reich, and was meant to be used to install a genocide of Jewish people in Canada and the United States should the Germans be able to defeat and conquer these two countries.

Nazi ideology dictated that humanity should be divided by racial classes with some, most notably the Germans themselves, ruling others and some, such as the Slavic people, reduced to poverty and ignorance. Jewish people however were thought of as being outside humanity and were to be eliminated.

At the time of the Wannsee Conference in 1942 the destruction of the Jewish people, regardless of where they were on Earth, was an established principle in Nazi ideology, exact figures on the numbers of Jewish people living in places like Ireland were presented in preparation of future operations. 

The book was bought by the Library and Archives of Canada last year and was restored and digitized. It is thought to have arrived to North America by soldiers who returned home after WWII, other Hitler-owned books are found at the Library of Congress and Brown University Library.

Kloss, who died in 1987, was a linguist and coined the terms Abstandsprache and Ausbauspeache, these terms deal with the development of languages concerning the issue of what makes a language a language and what makes it a dialect.
