British cryptanalysts do not realise significance of report: telegram refers to “special treatment”, not killing, & lists death camps only by initial: L (Lublin), B (Bełżec), S (Sobibor), T (Treblinka). Evidence of genocide of the Jews of Poland is filed in secret UK archives.

    @RealTimeWWII Nazi leaders were well aware that what they were doing was not the right thing but something that needed to be hidden.

  • @RealTimeWWII I didn’t even read „special treatment“ but just „Aktion Reinhart“ which is a code name. Seems like they were oblivious as to what operation “Reinhart” meant at that time.
