NotesNews: Cardinal Hinsley's Denunciation of the German Terror in Poland. - Polish Government Statement on Mass Extermination of Poles and Jews. - Mr Brendan on Punishment of Nazi Criminals. Cardinal Hinsley, Archbishop of Westminster, made the following broadcast in the B.B.C. European service on July 8. "I am going to tell some items of the truth about the murderous work of the Nazis in Poland and I will tell the truth without fear or favour. I am going to set down things which cannot be gainsaid concerning the barbarities of these tyrannous invaders in their treatment of Jews and Christians in Poland. History, if impartial, will applaud whatever retribution even-handed justice may mete out to the doers of savage deeds. For the records of all past ages prove that right reacts against wrong; and for the times to come we are witnesses of the unparalleled wrongs inflicted by the Nazis on men, women and children, untried and guiltless, in the lands overborne by the Nazi mechanised hordes. ...
