Decrypts reopen Holocaust debate

Decrypts reopen Holocaust debate

Secret records detailing the slaughter of Jews in Russia and Ukraine in the Second World War, due to be released today, will reopen the debate about how much Churchill and other Allied leaders knew of the early stages of the Final Solution.

The decrypts, done at Bletchley Park, will be released by the Public Record Office. John Fox, a lecturer at Jews' College, North London, who has seen some of the files, said: "You get the impression of a huge military operation."
