Long criticized, readers may see the role the Vatican played in saving European Jews through Gary L. Krupp and Pave the Way Foundation’s findings in the seminal new work, “Pope Pius XII And World War II: The Documented Truth.”

A large body of literature exists, which suggests and contributes to the erroneous presumption that Pope Pius XII was a virulent anti-Semite who acted only in the interest of Vatican assets. The distortion continues, that Pius XII was a Nazi collaborator, who endorsed the Nazi movement to defeat Communism and that he helped Nazi war criminals escape justice. Gary L. Krupp and Pave the Way Foundation, however, present their findings here in the seminal, eye-opening new book Pope Pius XII And World War II: The Documented Truth. It provides documentary and eyewitness accounts, and other scholarly sourced material that clearly demonstrates the error of these suppositions.

The reality of this argument remains–the evidence is contradictory. Many premature conclusions can be attributed to difficulties in obtaining original materials, accessing Vatican Secret Archives or even, unfortunately, anti-Catholic propaganda created by governments as a result of Cold War activities, or individual biases by both Catholics and Jews.

It is for this reason that Pave the Way Foundation decided to make as much information available for worldwide study as possible. To date, the foundation has identified and provided, on their website, over seventy thousand pages of research material, including original documents, news reports, video eyewitness testimonies, and previously limited-access Vatican materials.

About the Author
A politically aware teenager in Queens in the 1960s, Gary Krupp shared the prevailing negative opinion of Pope Pius XII, the controversial leader of the Roman Catholic Church during World War II. Today, he is one of the pope’s most vocal defenders in the Jewish community.

A retired medical services entrepreneur, Mr. Krupp created Pave the Way Foundation in support of promoting tolerance and understanding, by enhancing relations between religions through cultural, technological and intellectual gestures.
As a gesture of gratitude in recognition of his dedicated and tireless efforts on behalf of Catholic-Jewish and Vatican-Israeli relations, His Holiness Pope John Paul II bestowed the rank of Knight Commander of the Pontifical Order of St. Gregory the Great. Pope Benedict XVI subsequently awarded Mr. Krupp with the Silver Star, the highest honor bestowed upon a non-Catholic.

Mr. Krupp holds the distinction of being the only Jewish man in history to be knighted by two popes and invested as an Officer Brother in the Order of St. John, an honor he received by order of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in 2005.
