Summary
Accused of being silent during the Holocaust, Pope Pius XII and the Vatican of World War II are now exonerated in Gordon Thomas' newest investigative work, The Pope's Jews. Thomas' careful research into new, first-hand accounts reveal an underground network of priests, nuns and citizens that risked their lives daily to protect Roman Jews. Investigating assassination plots, conspiracies, and secret conversions, Thomas unveils faked documentation, quarantines, and more extraordinary actions taken by Catholics and the Vatican. The Pope's Jews finally answers the great moral question of the War: Why did Pope Pius XII refuse to condemn the genocide of Europe's Jews?
