ClosMaryann Riker: "In 1939, the British press leaked news of Hitler's plans to build concentration camps throughout Germany with the intent of gathering and holding German Jews. Churchill warned the world of Hitler's plans and no one listened. When the Allies rolled into the camps in 1945, the horrendous atrocities of what the Germans had done rung true and were documented and released to the press. This flag book highlights that moment when the public was warned of Hitler's intents and ignored them. "
