Catholic Church hid Jews from Nazis in Rome, research shows

New documentation shows that Catholic institutions in Rome gave shelter to thousands of Jews fleeing the Nazis, a Thursday statement said.

The statement was issued jointly by the Pontifical Biblica Institute in Rome, Rome’s Jewish Community and Israel’s official Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem.

Researchers from the three institutions presented the findings at a conference held at the Museum of the Shoah, which is near the Great Synagogue of Rome.
