英国掩盖波兰总理二战“遇刺”真相
Britain covered up WW2 "plot" to kill Polish PM
国际在线 www.crionline.cn 2006-09-05 15:53:21   

  LONDON (Reuters) - A distinguished Polish pilot who said he found a bomb intended to blow up the plane of Poland's wartime leader admitted to lying but the episode was hushed up by Britain's government, secret files released on Monday showed.

  波兰一位著名的飞行员曾透露,他于二战时发现了一枚企图炸毁波兰总理专机的炸弹;后来该飞行员又改口称自己是在说谎。然而,英国周一(4日)公布的秘密文档显示,炸弹事件中的一段情节曾被英国政府掩盖。

  The apparent plot to assassinate General Wladyslaw Sikorski, who led the Polish government in exile until his death in 1943, sparked a big inquiry with suspicions it was a German or Russian conspiracy but it turned out the pilot took the bomb aboard.

  这场所谓的暗杀计划是针对波兰前总理兼国防部长乌拉迪斯拉夫·希科尔斯基将军的。希科尔斯基直到1943年逝世前一直领导着流亡在外的波兰政府。这场“暗杀计划”曾被怀疑是一名德国人或俄罗斯人所为,但最后证实炸弹是这名飞行员自己带上飞机的。

  Prime Minister Winston Churchill was dragged into the investigation as security chiefs scrambled to uncover the truth about what happened on the plane over the Atlantic, a year before Sikorski's death in a mysterious plane crash.

  在希科尔斯基于一场神秘空难中身亡的前一年,安全部官员曾试图查明在那架飞越大西洋的飞机上究竟发生了什么。英国时任首相丘吉尔也被牵扯进了调查。

  The pilot said he found a smouldering bomb on board the plane taking Sikorski from Scotland to Canada on March 21, 1942.

  这名飞行员曾透露,1942年3月21日,他在希科尔斯基乘坐的从苏格兰飞往加拿大的飞机上发现了一枚正在燃烧的炸弹。

  Polish Wing Commander Bohdan Kleczynski said he found the device burning under his mattress as he rested on the B-24 Liberator plane. He said the device broke into two pieces as he rushed to the back of the plane to throw it down the toilet.

  这名飞行员就是波兰中校博哈丹·克莱琴斯基。他说,当时他正在那架B-24解放号飞机上休息,他发现床下有一枚炸弹正在燃烧。他说,炸弹已烧成了两半,他迅速冲到机舱后部将炸弹扔进了厕所。

  "The detached part was so hot I threw it straight into the lavatory pan," Kleczynski told investigators, according to documents made public at Britain's National Archives.

  英国国家档案馆日前公开的文档内容显示,克莱琴斯基告诉调查员说:“裂开的炸弹非常烫,以至于我将它直接扔进了抽水马桶中。”

  Despite his seniority and reputation as one of Poland's finest fighter pilots, investigators quickly doubted his story.

  尽管,克莱琴斯基的资历和声誉让他被认为是波兰最优秀的战斗机飞行员,但调查人员还是迅速从他的讲述中发现了破绽。

  "THE STORY IS FISHY"

  “虚构的故事”

  Intelligence agent Lord Rothschild, who led the inquiry, said: "The story is fishy ... I am somewhat doubtful if this is a real attempt to liquidate the general."

  负责此次调查行动的情报人员罗德·罗斯柴德表示:“这个故事是虚构的……我甚至怀疑是否这真是一次暗杀将军的行动。”

  Investigators questioned everyone on the plane and examined the small incendiary device. They found no evidence the bomb had partially exploded.

  调查人员询问了飞机上的每一名乘客,并检查了那枚小型的燃烧弹。他们发现没有任何证据显示炸弹裂开成了两半。

  Other passengers said they too had smelt burning, but this had been traced to a minor electrical fault on the plane.

  其他乘客表示,他们都闻到了物体燃烧时的气味,但最后证实这是由于飞机上的一个小电器出了毛病。

  With the evidence stacking up against him, Kleczynski bowed to mounting pressure and finally admitted he had lied.

  当所有证据都表明克莱琴斯基是在撒谎时,他终于承受不住巨大的压力,承认自己在说谎。

  The bomb was his. The pilot always carried it with him in case he was shot down and needed to blow up his plane.

  这枚炸弹是克莱琴斯基的。这名飞行员一直都随身携带着这枚炸弹,以便自己在被击毙或是需要炸毁飞机时将炸弹引爆。

  He had inadvertently taken the device onto the Polish leader's plane and panicked when he smelt burning during the flight, wrongly assuming the bomb was about to explode.

  他不小心将炸弹带上了波兰总理乘坐的飞机上,当他在飞行途中闻见烟味时误以为是引燃了炸弹。

  When told of the true nature of the "plot", Churchill wrote to Sikorski asking that the story be kept secret.

  当丘吉尔得知“暗杀计划”的真相后,他写信告诉希科尔斯基,要求其将整个事件保密。

  "He has been sufficiently punished by the mental anguish that he has passed through," Churchill wrote. "Having told one lie ... he was compelled to go on lying."

  丘吉尔在信中说:“他(克莱琴斯基)被自己所经受的精神痛苦折磨着。他说了一个谎……他是被迫说谎的。”

  Sikorski died in a plane crash in Gibraltar a year later.

  一年以后,希科尔斯基在直布罗陀的一场空难中遇害。

  Debate still rages in Poland decades over what brought his plane down on July 4, 1943.

  几十年过去了,有关1943年7月4日希科尔斯基乘坐的飞机失事的原因在波兰仍被争论不休。

  An inquiry failed to establish the cause of the accident, but ruled out sabotage, but a second British investigation in 1969 said there might have been foul play.

  调查小组也未能查清事故原因,但排除了政治阴谋的可能,但1969年来自英国的第2只调查小组称,这场空难有可能是一场谋杀。
