What People are Saying About This

Avery Cardinal Dulles
Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J
Following up on the arguments in her earlier books, Sr. Marchione here provides many facts to refute the recent charges that Pius XII failed to do what he should have done to prevent or contain the Holocaust. To her credit, she defends the great pope who by his prudent and courageous action did far more to save Jewish lives from Hitler's 'final solution' than any other person on earth.
