CHURCHILL TELLS OF IKE’S HORROR AT NAZI CRIMES

From the April 20, 1945 Edition of Stars and Stripes

LONDON, April 19 (AP)–Prime Minister Churchill revealed today to the House of Commons that Gen. Eisenhower had told him that German atrocities just discovered “far surpass” anything previously seen.

Churchill said that a “solemn warning” had been prepared “not only to the men on top but to the actual people who had done this foul work with their own hands.”

Churchill told Commons that his war statement would not be made for at least another two weeks. He said he would indicate next week whether he thought that the week after would be a “suitable” time for it.

Churchill deprecated premature speculation on when V-E Day would be announced.
