Pope Pius XII
(Eugenio Pacelli 1876 - 1958)
(a copy of http://www.piusxii.info/ from 20071204)
(The Pope who saved the Jews from the Nazis.)
"Pius XII? That is the only human being who has always contradicted me and who has never obeyed me."
Adolf Hitler (From Hans Jansen, THE SILENT POPE? )
"He was a great pope."
Pope John Paul II (March 21, 1998)
CONTRARY TO THE FABRICATIONS OF ROLF HOCHHUTH, A PLAYWRIGHT WHO WAS A MEMBER OF THE HITLER YOUTH, AND JOHN CORNWELL, A JOURNALIST WHO IS "ROLF HOCHHUTH REDIVIVUS" IN HIS CRITICISM OF POPE PIUS XII DURING WORLD WAR II, THERE ARE THE FOLLOWING HISTORICAL TESTIMONIES EMPHASIZING THE TRUTH OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT PERIOD OF HISTORY:
"No Christmas sermon reaches a larger congregation than the message Pope Pius XII addresses to a war-torn world at this season. This Christmas more than ever he is a lonely voice crying out of the silence of a continent."
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 25, 1942
