It started with his childhood. Than goes into his work prior to becoming the pope. He reviews the choices people made that lead up to the Holocaust. What was their priorities. What did they not know or see. Than it goes into his failures as the Pope. He paints a very negative view of the Pope.

This is a well researched dissection of the diplomatic Career of Egenio Pacelli, who called himself Pius XII. The impression given is that Eugenio was no friend of the Jews. Cornwell's research seems to indicate that Eugenio made an arrangement with the Nazis in the 1930's and carried out his part, which was to keep the involvement of the Roman church as low key as possible when it might involve interfering with the Nazi solution to the Jewish problem. There's a lot of footnotes.
Current opinion, including the author's, holds that Pius was no so pro-Nazi, or anti-semitic as he wrote in this book. ( )

Whether Pope Pius XII, who was Pope during World War II, was complicit in crimes against Jewish people during the Holocaust remains a heated question.

The author presents us with the case that Pius XII was instrumental in the rise to power of the Nazi Party and refused to speak out against the Holocaust and other Axis atrocities leading up to and during World War II. Additionally, Cornwell argues that the future Pope, Eugenio Pacelli, played a significant role in the build up to World War I.

While Cornwell makes a powerful case against Pius XII, further reading on the topic shows other writers who have defended the Pope, arguing that a number of Jewish people have praised his role during WWII protecting Jewish refugees in the Vatican and his instruction to churches to assist Jewish people hiding from Axis soldiers. While I recommend reading "Hitler's Pope", it is with the rider that the reader seek out other works that defend the Pope's work during World War II. ( )

"All successes [Pacelli believed] could only be attained by papal diplomacy. The system of concordats led him and the Vatican to despise democracy and the parliamentary system...Rigid governments, rigid centralizations, and rigid treaties were supposed to introduce an era of stable order, an era of peace and quiet."

-Heinrich Bruning, German Chancellor 1930-1932


"Pius XII and the Jews...The whole thing is too sad and too serious for bitterness...a silence which is deeply and completely in complicity with all the focus which carry out oppression, injustice, aggression, explotation, war." -Thomas Merton
"The cause of the beatification and canonization of Pope Pius XII, who is rightly venerated by many millions of Catholics, will not be stoopped or delayed by the unjustifiable and calumnious attacks against this great and saintly man." -Father Peter Gumpel, S.J., relator in the cause of Pius XII's canonization

During the "Holy Year" of 1950, a year in which many millions of pilgrims descended on Rome to show their allegiance to the papacy, Eugenio Pacelli, Pope Pius XII, was seventy-four years of age and still vigorous.
