Investigating the papacy of Pope Pius XII

Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it. - Maimonides

  With the opening of the  Yad Vashem (Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem) exhibit  in 2005, there was  an historically incorrect placard erected in the "Hall of Shame", There was a international outcry  to remove these troubling remarks. PTWF was asked to intercede to attempt to resolve this obstacles, which has plagued Jewish Catholic relations for the past 47 years.

  On July 1, 2012, after six years of work to identify and post on  line over 76000 pages of documents, news articles, official published works and including eye witness interviews, Yad Vashem revised their controversial placard to reflect a more accurate and balanced view.  PTWF has applauded this move towards historical accuracy that Yad Vashem  has taken.

In an attempt to add clarity to the Pius XII controversy, PTWF sponsored an intense yearlong workshop at La Sorbonne in Paris. This event was hugely successful since the defenders of this papacy where able to confront the critics in a scholarly and scientific environment.  The chair of this historic study was Professor Eduard Husson former Vice Chancellor of La Sorbonne and current Dean of ESCP Europe. The workshop concluded with a 2 day symposium November 2012 pictured below.
