Winston Churchill to Anthony Eden, July 11, 1944
Churchill expressed his outrage as the scale of the Nazi atrocities against the Jews became apparent. It was, he said, "probably the greatest and most horrible crime ever committed in the whole history of the world." Further, "Declarations should be made in public, so that everyone connected with it will be hunted down and put to death."
