Sir Martin Gilbert has a review [not online as of yet] of Rabbi David Dalin’s The Myth of Hitler’s Pope in the June/July American Spectator. Gilbert strongly endorses the book and, in several pages of terse prose brings case after case after case documenting Pius XII efforts to save Jews. He also confirms much of what I wrote previously regarding Pius. (Please see below.)
Gilbert is perhaps the world’s leading historian on both WW2 and the Holocaust.
What will Church-haters like Beyond BT’s Steve Brizel and, of course, DovBear, do with this shining endorsement of Pius? My guess? (And this is only that – a guess.) Continue to hate at all costs. After all, that is what bigots do.
UPDATE: I have uploaded scans of Sir Martin Gilbert’s review here.
