The Popes Against the Jews: The Vatican's Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-Semitism (Google eBook)
In this meticulously researched, unflinching, and reasoned study, National Book Award finalist David I. Kertzer presents shocking revelations about the role played by the Vatican in the development of modern anti-Semitism. Working in long-sealed Vatican archives, Kertzer unearths startling evidence to undermine the Churchís argument that it played no direct role in the spread of modern anti-Semitism. In doing so, he challenges the Vaticanís recent official statement on the subject, We Remember. Kertzer tells an unsettling story that has stirred up controversy around the world and sheds a much-needed light on the past.
