Churchill wanted Nazi to die in electric chair

`Winston Churchill wanted to send Adolf Hitler to the electric chair and let Gandhi starve to death, according to secret documents revealed today. Britain’s wartime Prime Minister believed senior Nazis should be summarily executed without trial.

In the 1940s, traitors and war criminals were hanged but he suggested borrowing an electric chair from the US.

Notes of Cabinet documents, which have just been released, show colleagues urged him to moderate his views on Gandhi, fearing repercussions if he died as a result of his hunger strike.’
