The threat of a Nazi invasion of Britain was very real during this time in 1940. That was a scary proposition for all Brits but particularly the Jewish community. How much was known in Britain at this point in the war about Nazi atrocities?

Quite a bit was at least suspected by the government authorities, but at this point, details of the Holocaust weren’t known by any government. At this point, even the Nazi government did not have a specifically and logistically detailed plan although all Nazi officials agreed on genocide. It wouldn’t be until the Wannsee Conference in another year when the Nazis would begin much of their genocide of the Jews.

However, I recall from a couple of sources that Willy Hitler(Later Willy Stewart-Houston) was claiming that Adolf Hitler was planning a total genocide of the Jews as early as 1938, but I am unable to find those sources right now.
