Summary
Examines the papacy of Eugenio Pacelli, Pius XII, pontiff from 1939 to 1958, discussing his failure to speak out against Hitler's actions during World War II, and charging that the Pope's behavior was consistent with his dedication to enhancing his own power and his personal antipathy toward the Jews
