    Pope Pius XII is one of the most controversial leaders of the World War II era. Yet he is controversial not because of what he did, but because of what he didn’t do. Even though the Vatican was reliably informed about the Nazi genocide of Europe’s Jews and Jewish organisations begged him to speak out, the pope refused to publicly condemn. With Besier's book as a warm‐up, approaching Michael Phayer's book, Pius XII, the Holocaust, and the Cold War completes the contextualization and allows for a more comprehensive historical view of the Holy See's wartime pope. What Phayer does in this work is place Pope Pius into the larger scope of Holocaust Studies.

      After decades of pressure from historians and Jewish groups, the Vatican on Monday began allowing scholars to access the archives of Pope Pius XII, who remained publicly silent during the Holocaust.   A new book delves into the real story of how the Allies confronted the Holocaust. For decades, the attempts made by the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC) to prosecute the horrific.

    The charity and work of Pope Pius XII during World War II so impressed the Chief Rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, that in he was open to the grace of God which led him into the Catholic faith. Pius XII, Ronald J. Rychlak’s Hitler, the War and the Pope, Michael Phayer’s The Catholic Church and the Holocaust, , Susan Zuccotti’s Under His Very Windows, Ralph McInerny’s The Defamation of Pius XII, and, most recently, James Carroll’s Constantine’s Sword.
