Abstract:

Opposes recent critical statements concerning the alleged silence of Pope Pius XII in the face of Nazi crimes against the Jews which have appeared in the Italian and international press since the publication of John Cornwell's "Hitler's Pope" (1999). Draws a profile of Pius XII, relating his thoughts and actions to their historical context. Asserts that the Pope helped the Jews, but avoided making this explicit in his public speeches. He preferred to keep the Holy See neutral and to keep the doors of churches and convents open to the Jews.
