Pius XII - "The Deputy" and Rolf Hochhuth a prior post Philip commented that Pope Pius XII saved many Jews. Which reminded me of a good article I ran across some time ago which picked apart the scurrilous lies told by Rolf Hochhuth in his play The Deputy. You can see the article from the Catholic League here.

Thanks for the link, Karen. I've been hoping to read up on this for awhile. There are a couple of books I plan to read (some day) and this was a good starting point.

Yeah, I think the article is pretty succinct and a good place to start.

Btw, if memory serves Alec Guiness played the part either off or on B'way when it came out in the early 60s. Before that you heard NO criticism of Pius XII being a Nazi sympathizer because within living memory people knew the contrary was the's only idiots now with no sense of history who know no better. Communist claptrap is what it is.
