Maybe not indeed. May I quote?

Prime Minister to Foreign Secretary 11 July 44

There is no doubt that this [persecution of Jews in Hungary and
their expulsion from enemy territory] 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. It is quite clear that all concerned in this crime
who may fall into our hands, including the people who only obeyed
orders by carrying out the butcheries, should be put to death after
their association with the murders has been proved.

I cannot therefore feel that this is the kind of ordinary case
which is put through the Protecting Power, as, for instance, the
lack of feeding or sanitary conditions in some particular prisoners’
camp. There should therefore, in my opinion, be no negotiations of
any kind on this subject. Declarations should be made in public, so
that everyone connected with it will be hunted down and put to

And in what appears to be the third volume “The Unrelenting Struggle:
War Speeches by the Right Hon. Winston S. Churchill, C.H., M.P.:”

A Tribute to the Jews. A message to the “Jewish Chronicle” on it
centenary, November 14 1941.

On the occasion of the centenary of the “Jewish Chronicle,” a
landmark in the history of British Jewery, I send a message of good
cheer to Jewish people in this and other lands. None has suffered
more cruelly than the Jew the unspeakable evils wrought on the
bodies and spirits of men by Hitler and his vile regime. The Jew
bore the brunt of the Nazis’ first onslaught upon the citadels of
freedom and human dignity. He has borne and continued to bear a
burden that might have seemed to be beyond endurance. He has not
allowed it to break his spirit; he has never lost the will to
resist. Assuredly in the day of victory the Jew’s sufferings and
his part in the struggle will not be forgotten. Once again, at the
appointed time, he will see vindicated those principles of
righteousness which it was the glory of his fathers to proclaim to
the world. Once again it will be shown that, though the mills of
God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small. [pages 310-311]
