September 8, 1942, The Shame of Winston Churchill

September 8, 1942, The Shame of Winston Churchill:

Winston Churchill in the House of Commons :

“The most bestial, the most squalid and the most senseless of all their offences, namely, the mass deportation of Jews from France, with the pitiful horrors attendant upon the calculated and final scattering of families. This tragedy fills me with astonishment as well as with indignation, and it illustrates as nothing else can the utter degradation of the Nazi nature and theme, and degradation of all who lend themselves to its unnatural and perverted passions.”
