    Interesting Read on the Holocaust and WW II

    I'd heard some not complimentary things about Pius XII's role during the Holocaust, and the Catholic church, in general. Assuming that this book is factual, it presents a different story about the Catholic church's role, that, in fact, it did much to save many Jewish lives (one estimate, according to the book, is 800,000). Thomas relates how Pius made it his personal campaign, even before becoming Pope, to save the Jews of Europe...of Rome in particular. He decrees that all Catholic churches were to use whatever means, and resources, were available to save Jewish lives, including issuing false baptismal certificates. It's a great story that restores one's faith in mankind, generally speaking, but there's also a black mark. Thomas also relates that one of the Pope's Cardinals, working inside the Vatican was responsible for issuing documents to help thousands of Nazis escape to places such as Argentina. From previous readings, I know that this is how Eicmann got out. It's a good read, very interesting, and well worth investing in.

    Countering the lies

    The Catholic church has never hated or persecuted the Jews. The Curch is, however, very much in opposition to the false Judaism that Our Lord spoke against, and its man made traditions, thievery and blasphemy.
