Pope Expected to Open Vatican Holocaust-Era Archive

POPE EXPECTED TO OPEN VATICAN HOLOCAUST-ERA ARCHIVE

 

Pope Francis is expected to open the Vatican’s Holocaust-era archive before his visit to Israel in May.

The move is also expected before the pontiff advances the beatification of Pope Pius XII, who headed the Catholic Church between 1939 and 1958. Jewish organizations accuse Pius of turning a blind eye to the plight of the Jews during the Holocaust while the Vatican has claimed that he saved Jews.
