Archive/File: holocaust/england/churchill churchill.003 Last-Modified: 1994/02/18 "Professor Michael Choen, author of _Churchill and the Jews_, alleges that Churchill's support of Zionism before the war was insincere, and castigates him for not following up a minute he wrote to Sinclair, Secretary of State for Air, advocating the bombing of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The RAF did not do so, and no documents exist to show that Churchill ever repeated this request. It is likely that he discussed the matter with Sinclair verbally, as he saw him frequently and they were old and close friends. Anyway, would the bombing of concentration camps have saved many inmates' lives? Why would bombs kill guards rather than prisoners? It is wrong to denigrate a great Englishman on such flimsy grounds." (Lamb, 347) Work Cited Lamb, Richard. Churchill As War Leader. New York: Carroll & Graf Publishers, Inc., 1991.
