Churchill Was Like Hitler?
Leo Amery, former UK Secretary of State for India, could see a similarity between Churchill's attitude to Indians and Hitler's attitude to Jews. (Churchill's Secret War.)
In 1943, millions of people were dying of starvation in Bengal, in India.
The UK prime minister Winston Churchill could easily have stopped the famine by arranging a few shipments of food.
But, but he refused.
He also prevented others from helping.
Winston Churchill described the Indians as "a beastly people with a beastly religion." (Churchill's Secret War.)
He said they "bred like rabbits."
