unresolved history
19 November 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

National Geographic presents a version of Pope Oius XII, the leader of the Catholic church during WWII, and derisively called Hitler's Pope. He fears for his flock under Nazi tyranny and reluctantly submits. Secretly, he is in contact with conspirators looking to assassinate Hitler. These conspirators need legitimacy and negotiating power with the Allies. They hope the Pope would be that conduit.

This is unresolved history and both sides can point to their evidence. This lays out a singular version of the Pope. There is no need to paint the man as black or white. I certainly understand playing both sides during those dangerous times. It is a complex time and he has a complex problem. This has him as a heroic figure fighting in the shadows. I read into the evidence that the Pope may have wanted the assassination but was unwilling to risk everything to get it. Of course, risking everything is not just risking his life but countless others.
