Open and Accessible: Taking Stock of the Vatican's Holocaust-Era Archives - Linda and Tony Rubin Lecture Series
In March 2019, His Holiness Pope Francis said - now famously - that "the Church is not afraid of history." The Pope spoke about opening the estimated 16 million pages of archival material for the pontificate of Venerable Pius XII (1939-1958), which became accessible for research in March 2020.
February 2023 marks nearly three years since one of the most important new archives related to the Holocaust opened. What does the research process in these archives look like on the ground? What have scholars discovered? What crucial questions remain, and how do they reshape our understanding of this era?
