' They also refrained from intervening in 1942, when the acts of annihilation were already known. They did not bomb, even once, the railroad lines leading to the gas chambers and crematoria or the death camp itself...' And what good would it have done -- really? The Nazis were perfectly able to kill the Jews in situ -- they just found Auschwitz less offensive to their sensibilities. It's worth noting that it wasn't exactly easy to 'intervene' with Nazi Germany in 1942. In fact, they were pretty much out of control, to say the least. Then too, targets in Poland weren't exactly easy to reach. Witness the quite genuine inability of the Western powers to provide meaningful help to the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Finally, such refusals were hardly unknown in Bomber Command. After all, in 1942 they also refused to support the Dieppe landing. Bomber Harris had his fixations, and he wasn't going to be distracted.
