Holocaust revenge plot

Recommended Posts

On UK TV tonight at 2100 GMT (Channel 4) a new documentary on a Holocaust survivors plot to mass poison German civilians. I've not heard of this story before - anyone else?

Rich Cohen's 'The Avengers: A Jewish War Story' details some of the groups activities so I've got that in my Amazon basket.

It was; I hadn't come across this story before though there's plenty of info online. interesting was the claim that the Avengers were partly funded by selling forged British five pound notes from Operation Bernhard on the black market. 

Of interest too is the possibility of a cover-up at Langwasser SS PoW camp. The group managed to poison the prisoners with arsenic, sickening a number between 1970 and 2200 without causing any known fatalities. There are claims of hundreds, possibly thousands of deaths. Did the US authorities cover-up?
