What did Pope Pius XII, his advisers, and his assistants at the Vatican do to help the Jews of Italy during World War II? This meticulously researched and balanced book finds that, despite the persistent myth that the pope worked behind the scenes to help the Jews, he and those around him actually did very little. Susan Zuccotti uncovers no evidence of a papal directive to church institutions to shelter Jews and much evidence that the pope remained uninvolved.

Commonweal

Zuccotti's conclusion is . . . absolute and thorough.
