"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.

User Review  - Kristin Brown - Goodreads

A fantastic response to Cornwell's Hitler's Pope. If one were to have just read Cornwell's work, you would have a very slanted view of the times and the church's efforts to save Jews in the Holocaust. Reading both works offers a much more complete picture of the times. Read full review
