Washington, D.C.: A report released today by the National Archives highlights a recently disclosed document declassified under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act showing that the United States may have learned about the Holocaust earlier than previously had been known. A November 24, 1941 dispatch from the Chilean consul in Prague to the Chilean government, believed to have been intercepted by British intelligence, stated, "The Jewish problem is being partially solved in the (Nazi) Protectorate, as it has been decided to eradicate all the Jews and send some to Poland...The German triumph will leave Europe freed of Semites..." This document appears in the files of the United States Coordinator of Information (COI), a predecessor to the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Central Intelligence Agency, by March 20, 1942 - one of the earliest indications in British and U.S. files of the overall Nazi policy toward the Jewish population of Europe.
