Even amongst Catholics the reputation of Pius XII is now controversial and there is a clear divide between a pro-Pius and anti-Pius camp.
The answer to this question has little to do with the life and actions of Pius XII, and much more to do with the Catholicism represented b The vilification of Pope Pius XII in recent years has been nothing less than extraordinary. The answer to this question has little to do with the life and actions of Pius XII, and much more to do with the Catholicism represented by Pius XII being anathema to contemporary political liberals. This is the concept that Rabbi David Dalin explores this in this excellent book. It would perhaps be a tad misleading to say the topic of this book is primarily how Pius XII rescued the Jews from the Nazis: the overall subject has less to do with Pius XII wartime actions and more to do with the role of the memory of the conservative Pope in the current culture wars.
That noted, the middle section does respond to the ungrounded accusation that Pius XII was either sympathetic to Nazi Germany or did nothing to help the Jewish people in their hour of desperate need. Rabbi Dalin demonstrates the historical reality that Pius XII, amidst horrendous circumstances, did a great deal to help the Jewish people.

There is a myth that the Catholic Church harbours a historical deep-seated anti-Semitism. While it is undeniable that many Catholics have treated the Jewish people shamefully in the past, the institution of the Church, and especially that of the Papacy, has frequently acted as a buffer against virulently anti-Jewish behaviour. Rabbi Dalin spends the first section of the book recounting how Popes have used their authority to criticise and refute many anti-Semitic beliefs and practices that occasionally arose in Europe.
The pernicious Blood Libel myth is but one slander against the Jewish people that a succession of Popes denounced in the strongest language. The Left, it seems, does not particularly care about actual support genocidal anti-Semitism when it comes from Islam. It is a book that deserves to be read.

Review of Mark Riebling, Church of Spies: The Vatican’s Secret War against Hitler
Mar 14, Rich rated it really liked it. More importantly, lending credence to the claims made in the book, this is a work written by a Jewish Rabbi defending a Catholic Pope. Aug 05, Jeremy Hatfield rated it really liked it. I appreciate the author's defense of Pope Pius XII, but a lot of times, and he makes a good answer for the work this book was written to rebut, but it seems like he tries too hard to defend Catholic Philosemitism, and makes too much an effort to demonize liberalism, instead of letting the virtues of one and the shortcomings of the other speak for themselves.

Jan 10, Kristin Brown rated it it was amazing. A fantastic response to Cornwell's Hitler's Pope. If one were to have just read Cornwell's work, you would have a very slanted view of the times and the church's efforts to save Jews in the Holocaust. Reading both works offers a much more complete picture of the times.
Mar 13, Julie rated it it was ok Shelves: , nonfiction. This book didn't really stand on it's own. It was written in response to Hitler's Pope, by John Cornwell and reads like a very boring research paper. A well researched research paper, but dull. Jan 18, Cindy rated it liked it.

The book had so much information it is hard to take it all in. I also like that the book gives the whole history of the Vaticans treatment of Jews. Jan 28, Orchid rated it really liked it. Sometimes, you want to read a book and then out of nowhere you find that your mom or sister ordered it. Still thinking on this one. Just goes to show the courage some people have in times of stress and distress.

Insanely biased. David Dalin presents half of the presented facts. Apr 11, Lee rated it liked it Shelves: world-war-ii , the-church. Not bad. The author tries hard to dispel myths put up by anti-orthodox critics of the Church in the last decade or so.
