What did Pius XII do to aid Jews during World War II? This meticulously researched and balanced book examines efforts on behalf of Jews in Italy, the country where the pope was in a position to be most helpful. It finds that despite a persistent myth to the contrary, Pius XII and his assistants at the Vatican did very little.
Annotation:
This scholarly study of the much disputed role of Pope Pius XII during World War II seeks answers to the questions of whether he spoke up against Nazi atrocities and whether he was, as was asserted, instrumental in rescuing Jews from the Holocaust. Winner of the Jewish Book Council's 2000 National Jewish Book Award in Jewish-Christian Relations.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The author succeeds remarkably, not only in her thorough research but in her utter evenhandedness...." 11/15/2000

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"[Presents] a much more detailed and sophisticated assessment of the official Catholic outlook of the time than most previous works while remaining quite critical of the Church's leadership....The result is less a story in black and white, and rather a more tangled account replete with shortsightedness, miscalculations, sporadic indifference, half-hearted efforts and failure of the imagination." - Michael R. Marrus 03/04/2001

Times Literary Supplement
"Always meticulous, fair-minded and based on extensive archival research...." - Robert S. Wistrich 03/01/2002
