Abstract:

In contrast to Rolf Hochhuth's play "Der Stellvertreter", defends Pope Pius XII in regard to his role in the Holocaust. Justifies the pope's failure to directly condemn Nazi persecution of the Jews on the grounds that it would have worsened the situation of the persecuted. Cites evidence of aid from the Vatican, via high- and low-level clergy and lay people, and via financial and other material help, to Jews in Hungary, Romania (including Transnistria), Slovakia, France, Germany and, especially, Italy. Mentions some important Vatican representatives who rescued Jews, including Archbishop Roncalli (later John XXIII). Stresses the pope's concern for justice and humanity toward Jews.
