Pope Pius XII never explicitly condemned Nazi Germany’s murder of European Jewry during the Second World War. Why he did not still remains a matter of controversy 70 years after the end of the war. Prof. Jacques Kornberg will offer an explanation of why he acted as he did.
Professor Jacques Kornberg is a member of the Department of History, University of Toronto. His books include: Theodor Herzl: From Assimilation to Zionism; and the Pope’s Dilemma: Pius XII Faces Atrocities and Genocide in the Second World War.
