Letter from Card. Pacelli trying to secure 200,000 visas for "Converted Italians" in 1938 3 weeks after Kristallnacht. The following pages list over 65 nuncios asked for assistance. "Non-Aryan Catholics" was a code word for persecuted Jews. Since the 1933 concordat permitted the Church to care for converted Jews they used this phrase in their correspondence. There is also no reasonable way one can believe that there were 200,000 converted Jews in Germany in 1938. The following documents are of the list of nuncios that received the requests. There is one response in English from Scotland speaking about caring for the Jews. There is the front page of the Irish News stating that the Pope is trying to help the Jews of Germany.
