The Holocaust-Era Archives of Pope Pius XII: The State of the Question
|Date||Sun, Oct 17, 1:00pm - 2:00pm|
For decades, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and many others have called for the opening of the wartime Vatican archives—16 million pages that could shed light on the actions of Pope Pius XII and his fellow church leaders as millions of Jews and other victims were being murdered across Europe. At last, in 2019, Pope Francis announced they would open in 2020, stating “The Church is not afraid of history.”
You are invited to this webinar about the significance of these archives and this scholarship for Jewish-Christian relations. Following reflections by Vatican archivist Piero Doria, leading scholars—including USHMM’s Dr. Suzanne Brown-Fleming—will discuss their initial findings and how these documents may lead to a new understanding of this history.
Co-presented by the Center for Christian-Jewish Learning at Boston College, the International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem, and USHMM's Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust.
This program is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.
