An upcoming BBC Radio 4 programme may be of interest to readers. The programme – entitled “The BBC and the Hungarian Holocaust” will be broadcast on Monday, November 12th 2012 at 20:00 GMT and its synopsis describes it thus:
“In March 1944 German troops occupied Hungary. In doing so they brought the Final Solution to the largest remaining Jewish population in Europe. Within months over 400,000 people were deported and killed by a now almost perfect mass killing machine.
Mike Thomson investigates documents which suggest that the BBC was directed not to broadcast crucial information and examines claims that it could have saved thousands of lives.”
