In some places you will get shouted down for supporting Pope Pius XII and his cause for sainthood. For some, Pius is a lightening rod and no amount of reasonable-ness will quiet their anxiety. I find this is especially true for the New York area. Undaunted by the challenge of the truth, Gary Krupp, founder of the Pave the Way Foundation, is working to get the truth of what Pope Pius XII did and didn’t do into the public forum. He’s trying to clear the air. For many the conversation is hard and painful but truth needs to be told and told with clarity, charity and firmness.

The Vatican Publishing House is making available, free of charge on the internet, more than 8,000 pages of the Actes et Documents du Sainte-Siège relatifs à la Seconde Guerre Mondiale (1965-1981) edited by Jesuit Fathers Pierre Blet, Angelo Martini, Robert A. Graham and Burkhart Schneider.
The release of these documents are the result of a request of the Pave the Way Foundation (PTWF) made to the Holy See to digitalize and publish 5,125 documents of the Vatican Secret Archives dated from March 1939 to May 1945. PTWF president Gary Krupp said his Foundation aims to remove the barriers between Catholic and Judaism. He told Jesús Colina of Zenit, “In the futherance of our mission we have recognized the papacy of the war time Pope Pius XII as a source of friction impacting over one billion people.”
