Description

This account of how Nazi war criminals were shielded from justice by the UK after World War II describes how the immigration policy of Clement Atlee's post-war government actually favoured Eastern Europeans over non-whites and Jewish Holocaust survivors. Despite protests from MPs, Dick Crossman and Tom Driberg, former members of the Waffen-SS and Nazi police unites made new lives in Britain. British intelligence recruited agents among these former Nazis and sent many into the Eastern Bloc, where they were betrayed by Kim Philby. Only in 1986 did the Simon Wiesenthal Centre provide evidence that could not be ignored. The House of Lords defied the Commons in a last-ditch effort to stop legislation which would permit war crimes trials in Britain, but on May 10 1991, the war crimes bill was signed by The Queen.
