The Myth of Hitler’s Pope: How Pope Pius XII Rescued Jews from the Nazis (Rabbi David G. Dalin)

01.06.2013

Rabbi David Dalin talked about his book “The Myth of Hitler’s Pope: How Pope Pius XII Rescued Jews from the Nazis”, published by Regnery. He writes that Pope Pius XII was not complicit with Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party, as some historians contend. Rabbi Dalin examines the actions of Pope Pius XII and also traces the actions of the Catholic Church during the late 1930s and through World War II. The author writes that Pope Pius XII was not an anti-Semite and that the Catholic Church did more than any other religion to save the lives of European Jews during the Holocaust. At the same time the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, became Hitler’s staunch ally and a promoter of the Holocaust, with a legacy that feeds radical Islam today. After his presentation, Rabbi Dalin answered questions from members of the audience.
