Catholics and Jews and World War II

A report on "a document unearthed recently by the New York-based Pave the Way Foundation, founded by an American Jew, Gary Krupp" — Allies Urged Pope Pius XII's "Silence". The document noted that the Allies "feared the Holy Father may make Radio appeal on behalf of Jews in Hungary and that in his appeal he may also criticise what the Russians are doing in occupied territory."

Also reported on are "Vatican Radio denunciations of the treatment of Jews in France" and "the denunciation in German of anti-Semitic actions in Slovakia." We learn "how the Vatican was hiring Jewish academics who were fired by Italian institutions due to Mussolini's anti-Semitic laws" and of "a short article on how Mussolini is reported to be relaxing his Jewish racial laws in order to try to strengthen his relations with the Vatican."

At the episcopal level, we read of "a confrontation between Cardinal Pierre-Marie Gerlier, archbishop of Lyon, when he was visited by Nazi authorities in France," and "a strong condemnation of Nazi theories from Cardinal Jusztinián Györg Serédi, archbishop of Esztergom." Also noted is that "Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, printed 10 million pamphlets in multiple languages for distribution in Europe and Latin America, condemning Pope Pius XII for his pro-Jewish stance."

All these documents have been made available by the Pave the Way Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting "World Peace through appreciation of religious similarities." Venerable Pope Pius XII, pray for us.
