A Golders Green researcher who discovered dark secrets about the British intelligence services during the Second World War has been featured in print and on TV – but the Ham&High was the first to reveal the shocking truth.
Dr Helen Fry found out that MI5 and MI6 knew about the Holocaust during the conflict because intelligence services had bugged tens of thousands of German prisoners of war. But in a dark twist, they chose not to provide this evidence to the Nazi war-crimes trials.
Dr Fry made the discovery by trawling through hundreds of documents declassified in 1999.
Since the Ham&High broke the story in December, it has been featured on the BBC and Channel 4, and will be on ITV and in the Radio Times later this week.
Dr Fry first spoke out about her findings at the London Jewish Cultural Centre (LJCC) in North End Road, Golders Green.
