A Cross Too Heavy : Pope Pius XII and the Jews of Europe Paperback / softback
by P. O'Shea
The papacy of Pius XII (1939-1958) has been a source of near-constant criticism and debate since his death, particularly because of his alleged silence during the Holocaust.
Paul O'Shea examines his little-studied pre-papal life to demonstrate that Pius was neither an anti-Semitic villain nor a 'lamb without stain.'
