US group finds more evidence Pope Pius XII worked to save Jews

Catholic World News - June 16, 2009

The Pave the Way Foundation has announced discovery of 2,300 documents from the World War II era, providing further evidence that Pope Pius XII worked to save Jews from the Holocaust. The New York-based foundation, dedicated to inter-religious understanding, has made a special study of the wartime papacy, and its founder, Gary Krupp, has emerged as a leading Jewish defender of Pius XII. Krupp reports that the newly discovered documents were housed in an Italian monastery, and speculates that other documents might be readily available in various Italian dioceses, if researchers are interested in searching for them.
