Gannon has posted numerous times an article written by Bradley Smith
in which, among other false claims, it is stated that Churchill and 
Eisenhower never made any reference to the Holocaust.
 
Each and every time he made this claim, I posted the following two
excerpts from their writings and asked him for a comment. Naturally,
he declined.

So, I have decide to start running a counter; this is the third time
Gannon is asked to answer the quotes which show him once again to be an 
un-educated, lying Nazi propagandist. One could, of course, choose
hundreds of such questions, as Gannon never answers any counter-claim;
I might add some as time goes by.


Churchill, in a letter to Foreign Secretary Eden, regarding the killing of 
Hungarian Jews at Auschwitz (from Churchill's book about WW2):

 ---------------------------------------------------------------
  There is no doubt that this is probably the greatest and
  most horrible crime ever committed in the whole history of the
  world, and it has been done by scientific machinery by nominally
  civilized men in the name of a great State and one of the leading
  races of Europe. 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------

Excerpted from Eisenhower's "Crusade in Europe":

 ----------------------------------------------------------------
    "The same day [April 12, 1945] I saw my first horror camp.  It was
  near the town of Gotha.  I have never felt able to describe my
  emotional reactions when I first came face to face with indisputable
  evidence of Nazi brutality and ruthless disregard of every shred of
  decency.  Up to that time I had known about it only generally or
  through secondary sources.  I am certain, however that I have never
  at any other time experienced an equal sense of shock.

    I visited every nook and cranny of the camp because I felt it my
  duty to be in a position from then on to testify at first hand about
  these things in case there ever grew up at home the belief or
  assumption that `the stories of Nazi brutality were just
  propaganda.'  Some members of the visiting party were unable to
  through the ordeal.  I not only did so but as soon as I returned to
  Patton's headquarters that evening I sent communications to both
  Washington and London, urging the two governments to send instantly
  to Germany a random group of newspaper editors and representative
  groups from the national legislatures.  I felt that the evidence
  should be immediately placed before the American and British publics
  in a fashion that would leave no room for cynical doubt."
