"Hitler's Pope," Pope Pius XII, may have arranged for 200,000 Jews to leave Germany after Kristallnacht, The Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday.

Dr. Michael Hesemann, a German historian doing research in the Vatican, told the paper that, as a cardinal, Pius wrote to archbishops around the world, asking them to obtain exit visas for "non-Aryan Catholics" and Jewish converts to Christianity.
