+  #7 Church of Spies: The Pope's Secret War against Hitler

  • Description: The Vatican’s alleged silence during the Nazi regime is one of the greatest controversies of the 20th century. History has dubbed Pius XII as “Hitler’s Pope,” accusing him of standing idly by or even of being complicit with the Holocaust. This accusation is far from the truth. While running the world’s largest Church, Pope Pius also oversaw a multi-tiered plot to overthrow Hitler. He tape-recorded meetings with top Nazis and skimmed from church charities to pay for covert operations. These plots inspired European unification and forged a US-Vatican alliance that spanned the Cold War. Mark Riebling tells us how Pius waged this secret war against Hitler while never speaking overtly against him.
