Sister Marchione strikes again. Her book titled DID POPE PIUS HELP THE JEWS is a short book, but it is solid. Sister Marchione again cites testimony from Jewish survivors, historical documents (not hysterical media nonsense), and secondary sources many of which were written by Jewish historians on behalf of Pope Pius XII and honest history. This book is a good introduction to the actual courage of Pope Pius XII and brave Catholics who risked their lives helping W.W. II refugees including Jewish refugees.

Rabbi Dalin wrote a book titled THE MYTH OF HITLER'S POPE, and Sister Marchione's book titled DID POPE PIUS XII HELP THE JEWS clarly proves that Pope Pius XII being Hitler's Pope is indeed a myth. Sister Marchione cites Eugenio Pacelli's remarks about Hitler in 1929 in which Eugenio Pacilli (the future Pope Pius XII)condemned Hitler and sounded alarm bells about the future German leaders. Sister Marchione examines the documents of the concordot between the Vatican and the German authorities made in 1933 in an attempt on part of the Vatican to protect the rights of Catholics under the new German government. Eugenio Pacelli not only insisted on the rights of the German Catholics, but as the Vatican Secretary of State, also insisted on the rights of race and religious minorities other than Catholics. The documents are there. Readers should note that when Eugenio Pacelli was elected Pope Pius XII, the Hitler regime registered strong protests and called Pope Pius XII the Jewish Pope because of his earlier condemnation of German race hallucinations.

Sister Marchione also cites the testimony of Jewish refugees who were helped by Pope Pius XII.

This book should dispel all the lies and myths going around about Pius XII's 'abandonment' of the Jews during the Holocaust. Pius did more and saved more lives than all other organizations or countries in the world combined at great personal risk to himself. He DID speak out against Hitler but found that the more he did so, the more aggressively Hitler persued his 'solution.' Instead, he opened all the churches, monasteries and convents to Jews fleeing capture, including the Vatican itself. He also arranged for many of them to obtain passage to other safe countries. He arranged to have them housed and paid all food and medical expenses. My personal opinion is that he is the pope who should be up for canonization now instead of Pope John Paul II.

This is very well researched and contains information that the general public should know in light of the fact that others are presenting opposing, incorrect information.
I recommend this highly to anyone interested in the role of the Church during WW II.

I truly enjoy John Grisham His books are "page turners".
I also disliked those violent and amorally crazy other books like, "The girl who kicked the hornet's nest"...
The story on Pope Pius XII is so credible and courageous. I hope more people read the real account which is amazing and heroic. No wonder he is up for sainthood!

I manage a small library at my church and I wanted to read it on Kindle before I ordered it in hard copy. It was an excellent book.

Pius XII did much to help the Jews as is shown in this book. Most of what he did had to be done secretly to avoid the wrath of the Nazis for if they had kidnapped him, as Hitler wanted, he would have been able to do nothing. His efforts on behalf of the Jews so impressed the leading Rabbi of Rome that he subsequently converted to Catholicism after the end of the war. That alone speaks powerfully about the motivations of Pius XII. Some people seem to think that if Pius had just gotten on television and spoken out against the Nazi menace, the menace would have stopped. Well, there was no television in those days. Most of Europe was under the Nazi boot and little got out that the Nazis didn't want out. Vatican City was totally surrounded by the Fascists and later the Nazis limiting its public protests although much was done in a non-public manner as the book points out. Not knowing the horrible terror that existed for all Europeans at that time is to not understand. I only know because I have read a great deal about it and my mother-in-law lived in Germany during those years and personally experience the terror. Indeed, her parish priest made an anti-Nazi remark at a parish picnic once and the next day he disappeared never to be heard of again. Everyone assumed the obvious and many thousand of incidents like that cowered people all over Europe from speaking out. One wrong word could land them in a concentration camp. Pius tried to balance the protection of his own huge flock throughout Europe with his desire to help the Jews. It is too easy for us to look back and criticize from the safety and comfort of our lives today. Instead, we should marvel at all the Pius was able to accomplish in the face of such tyranny. This book is highly recommended.
