Born in Rome on March 2, 1876 to an aristocratic family with deep Papal ties (Black Nobility), Pope Pius XII went to seminary school at the age of 18 and later went to the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Appolinare Institute of Lateran University and then he went to the University of Rome La Sapienza. He jumped around a lot so you’ll have to excuse me for not listing the rest of his schools. Over the years leading up to the first world war he steadily climbed the ranks. He even gained enough prestige to represent the Holy See at the coronation of King George V in 1911. He became Cardinal Secretary of State and formed a concordat with Serbia just four days before Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. After the war he became pretty much the under-pope of the European territory of the former German Empire. Pope Pius XI died on February 10,1939 and Pius XII was quickly elected as Pope. Things looked alright for a while when he broke Italy’s iron grip on the church by surrounding himself with a mix of nationalities who had previously been black-balled like Americans, Germans and Dutch.
He turned to the dark side in World War 2 when he offered his protection and support for Jewish officials and rabbis who had been “encouraged” to betray their followers to the Germans. Thousands of these traitors somehow found their way to Rome. The Chief Rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, Isaac Herzog and Rabbi Safran of Bucharest were all complicit in the scheme and were aware of the millions of people being sent to Nazi death camps. The rabbis and officials who fled to Rome weren’t just given a shack on the outskirts of the city. They were often given quarters IN the Vatican City as well as the Papal palace in Castel Gandolfo. Once new identities had been forged (at the Pope’s command) they were usually sent to Palestine or the United States. After this was done and things weren’t looking good for the fascists, Pius XII started doing the exact same thing for officials from governments and church organizations responsible for mass murder including Nazis, Italians, Romanians and Croats. This scheme has since gained the appropriate moniker “the Rat Lines.” These guys actually stayed in the same rooms that the Jewish traitors had stayed in not long before. Pope Pius XII died on October 9, 1958 in a manner not hardly as painful as he deserved. Since his death the Vatican has launched a media blitz to try to cover up his crimes which unfortunately seems to be working.
His actions aided the wholesale slaughter of the Jews and other groups targeted during the Holocaust, allowed several thousand of those responsible to escape justice and marred an entire religion. In some respects his crimes are far worse than anything Hitler or Stalin did. He was a failure as a priest and a human being. He was openly hateful against black people, Jews, Orthodox Christians, Muslims and communists/socialists. He even conferred the spiritual powers of Jesuit priests on SS officers. WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!? He was practically sprinting to Hell. Pius XII has such a long rap sheet I can’t possibly go through it all.
Crimes- Hypocrisy, betrayal, extortion leading to further crimes against humanity, inciting violence and racial hatred, unlawful enterprise, heresy, aiding war criminals.
People killed: complicit in the mass murder of 11-17 million people.
