Pinchas Lapide´s enlightening study :[Lapide] was consul general of Israel in Milan and met with many Italian Jews who survived the Holocaust. In his work, Lapide documents how Pius XII worked for the salvation of at least 700,000 from the hands of the Nazis. However, according to another estimate, this figure rises to 860,000.
How great are Gods wonders. One might argue though that it is more amazing that Catholics who have prayed for the conversion of Jews sense the time of Christ, who identify the current Jewish religion as false for there rejection of the Messiah, and put themselves at risk of torture and death cooperated to save between 700 and 800 thousand Jews. As god removed them from harm from his servant Pope Pius XII from bodily harm may he bring there souls out of danger through his intercession.
*By the way the Chief Rabbi of Rome after WWII converted to Catholicism.
