Pope Pius XII, Again

Martin Gilbert, who knows a little something about World War II and the Holocaust, reviews The Myth of Hitler's Pope, and finds it very convincing:

Professor Dalin's book is an essential contribution to our understanding of the reality of Pope Pius XII's support for Jews at their time of greatest danger. Hopefully, his account will replace the divisively harmful version of papal neglect, and even collaboration, that has held the field for far too long.
