Walter von Reichenau, Severity Order. Jews were to be treated as de facto partisans, and were to be shot or handed to the Einsatzgruppen execution squads Upon hearing of the Severity Order, Gerd von Rundstedt expressed "complete agreement" with it, and sent out a circular to all of the Army generals under his command urging them to send out their own versions of the Severity Order, which would impress upon the troops the need to exterminate Jews.
