The Myth of Hitler's Pope: Pope Pius XII And His Secret War Against Nazi Germany

Front Cover
Regnery History, Jun 24, 2005 - Political Science - 209 pages
"Was Pope Pius XII secretly in league with Adolf Hitler? No, says Rabbi David G. Dalin - but there was a cleric in league with Hitler: the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini. As Pope Pius XII worked to save Jews from the Nazis, the grand mufti became Hitler's staunch ally and a promoter of the Holocaust, with a legacy that feeds radical Islam today." "In this shocking and thoroughly documented book, Rabbi Dalin explodes the myth of Hitler's pope and condemns the myth-makers for not only rewriting history, but for denying the testimony of Holocaust survivors, hijacking the Holocaust for unseemly political ends, and ignoring the real threat to the Jewish people."--BOOK JACKET.
