VATICAN ARCHIVES Pope Francis announced on March 4 that he will open the Vatican’s secret archives on the pontificate of Pope Pius XII (1939-58) in March 2020 to shed light on his role during the Holocaust. Francis told the Officials of the Vatican Secret Archive that Pius’s legacy had been tainted with “some prejudice and exaggeration.” Yad Vashem commended the decision, saying it would “enable objective and open research as well as a comprehensive discourse on issues related to the conduct of the Vatican, in particular, and the Catholic Church, in general, during the Holocaust.”
