The German surface fleet was no longer a significant force by then. Most of their heavy ships had been sunk and the remainder were confined to ports on Germany's North Sea coast. Allied air supremacy and sea power made it impossible for Germay's few remining ships to sally forth. Allied air power also denied Germany use of the French ports. Thus, even if their ships had wanted to leave port, they were much too far away to do anything about it.

What did the allies know about the nazi treatment?

I will assume you are referring to the treatment of POWs. ?About 80 percent of the German land forces was made up of Army soldiers (Heer) and generally the Geneva convention was enforced by the Heer, especially against the western allies. The Heer had large amounts of German military personnel that were in POW camps and wanted their soldiers treated decently, also. So generally Western Allied soldiers caught could expect to be treated descently. The SS Combat Forces, separate branch from the concentration camp SS, drew their combat experience from the eastern front, where surrendering to the Russians, just wasnt a option. As a result, Allies didnt take alot of SS prisoners and vice versa, but the SS Combat forces were a small part of the Wehrmacht (German Military Forces). From what I have read the average allied soldier didn't know much of the concetration camps until he came across them during the advance thru Europe. I suspect that the Allied Senior Commanders knew of the camps, but could do little until they owned the captured the camps.
