How the Vatican Can Shed Light on the Holocaust

The Vatican has refused to open all of its World War II archives. Pope Francis’ visit to Auschwitz on Friday is the perfect moment to change policy.

CHR Comment: The Vatican Archives are a historic treasure and likely hold a mountain of information about the greatest global conflict in history: World War II. They recently released information about the World War I sinking of the Lusitania and the Armenian Genocide. If these releases are an indication of their policy, the archive will not likely release documents until the 2030s or 2040s.
