It was the extinction of Germany, not the defeat of Nazism, which was the priority of the British. In fact, due to consistent British sabotage of the German resistance, even providing information to the Nazis, to liquidate resistance fighters, and refusal to take action against concentration camps, the British succeeded in prolonging the war and killing massive numbers of Germans . There were as many casualties in the last nine months of the war, that is after the failed attempt against Hitler by Stauffenberg, as in the entire five years of war up to that point.
The British bear direct responsibility for the Holocaust, as well. Not only did they not intervene to bomb rail lines into concentration camps, once the existence of such camps had become common knowledge, but they deliberately concealed information they had about the Holocaust years earlier.
In a report which appeared in the Daily Telegraph , Oct. 15, 1998, “MI6 ‘Concealed Extermination of Jews for a Year,’ ” and in a London Times piece entitled, “Britain Accused of Hiding Facts on Holocaust,” the role of Churchill and MI6 are laid bare. The stories are based on what is documented in a new book, by American University historian Richard Breitman, entitled. Official Secrets: What the Nazis Planned , What the British and Americans Knew, based on his reading of recently declassified intercepts by British codebreakers during the Second World War. Breitman reveals that the Churchill government, and Churchill personally, knew about the Holocaust a year earlier than was thought , and concealed the information from the Allies. Britain had recognized the Nazi policy of mass killing of Jews in the East by mid-September 1941 , and by the following January, realized that Hitler was intent on exterminating European Jewry. Nevertheless, the information from the secret radio intercepts was not passed on to the United States until 1982 (!), as part of an American investigation of suspected war criminals.
According to Breitman, Churchill’s reputation as “a great hero” should be challenged, since he should have alerted Jews in Germany’s satellite states and in neutral countries, while Roosevelt’s role in the whole story should be more positively reassessed, as he was kept in the dark by the British. In a statement Oct. 14, quoted by the Times, Breitman says: “The British did not share these decodes with the Americans. There was a secrecy reason for not doing so, but there were also a number of conflicts, and a great deal of mistrust between London and Washington on Jewish issues. Anthony Eden [the Foreign Secretary] was a strongly negative influence. To some extent, the reputation of Roosevelt needs adjustment on this issue, because the British knew this earlier. I do not see how it follows that Churchill was a great hero in responding to the Holocaust and Roosevelt was a great villain.”
Breitman charges that the British “simply hoarded” the vital information they were accruing, on transport and other aspects of the infrastructure of the Holocaust. Asked by the Telegraph how he assessed British conduct in late 1941 and much of 1942, he said: “I do not use the word ‘atrocious,’ but I believe that Britain, not in a military sense but in a political and diplomatic sense, could have done more than it did.”

Guess that's innuendo on deportation and reprisal killings again. The decodes got nothing on homicidal gassings. Or what was it that the British "concealed" and now has been concealed? Show us the pink elephant. Decodes have been discussed here previously and they don't lend themselves to prove an extermination policy of Jews involving use of homicidal gas chambers. But perhaps there are some documents we've not known about previously. Any idea?
I'll go into betrayal of traitors issue in the WW2 section of this forum later (on this John Wheeler Bennett character). Here we just deal with the Holocaust issues.
