Holocaust commission member: Pius XII saved my father’s life

Catholic World News - November 04, 2010

A member of the Alabama Holocaust Commission has told the Pave the Way Foundation that Venerable Pius XII saved his father’s life.

Adler’s father later made his way to the Dominican Republic with the help of a Vatican network.
