Holocaust and the Vatican

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports from Rome on a new study by a panel of six historians on the role played by the Catholic Church during the Nazi Holocaust. The historians examined eleven volumes of documents and concluded that by the middle of 1942, the Vatican was well aware of "the accelerating mass murder of Jews." In their report, the historians asked for more information about the Church response to these crimes.
