"A historical study based on documents previously locked in the Vatican's secret archives: The Popes Against the Jews graphically shows how the Catholic Church helped make the Holocaust possible." "It traces the Vatican's role in the development of modern anti-Semitism from the nineteenth century up to the outbreak of the Second World War. Kertzer shows why all the recent attention given to Pope Pius XII's failure to publicly protest the slaughter of Europe's Jews in the war misses a far more important point. What made the Holocaust possible was groundwork laid over a period of decades. In this campaign of demonization of the Jews - identifying them as traitors to their countries, enemies of all that was good, relentlessly pursuing world domination - the Vatican itself played a key role, as is shown here for the first time." "Despite its focus, this is not an anti-Catholic book. It seeks a balanced judgment and an understanding of the historical forces that led the Church along the path it took."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

In this book, Brown University Professor David Kertzer's book refutes the Church's contention that the Holocaust was due to "an anti-Judaism that was essentially more sociological and political than religious." Rather, he shows, using long-sealed Church archives which were only recently opened, that European antisemitism was "in no small part due to the efforts of the Roman Catholic Church itself." I have a lot of histories about Germany and WWII, but I have to admit that I was surprised to learn that the racial laws of fascist Italy and the Nuremberg Laws of 1930s Germany, for example, were directly modeled on the RC Church's own rules governing treatment of Jews: right up until the dissolution of the Papal States in the late 19th century. Jews living in these territories were forced to wear yellow badges and live in ghettos. Why do the history books let the church off so lightly? ( )

NO OF PAGES: 355 SUB CAT I: Anti-Semitism SUB CAT II: Jewish - Christian Issues SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: A groundbreaking historical study based on documents previously locked in the Vatican?s secret archives: The Popes Against the Jews graphically shows how the Catholic Church helped make the Holocaust possible.

Pope John Paul II, as part of his effort to improve Catholic-Jewish relations, has himself called for a clear-eyed historical investigation into any possible link between the Church and the Holocaust. An important sign of his commitment was the recent decision to allow the distinguished historian David I. Kertzer, a specialist in Italian history, to be one of the first scholars given access to long-sealed Vatican archives.

The result is a book filled with shocking revelations. It traces the Vatican?s role in the development of modern anti-Semitism from the nineteenth century up to the outbreak of the Second World War. Kertzer shows why all the recent attention given to Pope Pius XII?s failure to publicly protest the slaughter of Europe?s Jews in the war misses a far more important point. What made the Holocaust possible was groundwork laid over a period of decades. In this campaign of demonization of the Jews?identifying them as traitors to their countries, enemies of all that was good, relentlessly pursuing world domination?the Vatican itself played a key role, as is shown here for the first time.

Despite its focus, this is not an anti-Catholic book. It seeks a balanced judgment and an understanding of the historical forces that led the Church along the path it took.

Inevitably controversial, written with devastating clarity and dispassionate authority, The Popes Against
the Jews is a book of the greatest importance.NOTES: Purchased from the Amazon Marketplace. SUBTITLE: The Vatican's Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-Semitism

I have never before read a book where every page beyond the preface is a new scandal. Every page is stunning. There is so much new, revolting evidence here, you cannot possibly summarize the highlights to anyone. They have to read it for themselves. The Church is damned by its own extensive documentation, aided, abetted, and completely footnoted by the author. The final chapter - the Holocaust era (The Church will not give access to anything more recent)essentially positions the Church as COMPETING with the Nazis for antisemitism. They didn't want upstart, secular discriminators horning in on their traditional turf!

I cannot recommend a book more.

(Introduction): Edward Cardinal Cassidy, Australian head of the Vatican's Commission for Religioous Relations with the Jews, called in reporters to announce the long-awaited results of his investigation.
The history of the Vatican's dealings with the Jews over the past two centuries could well have followed a different path.
