The Holocaust, the Church, and the Law of Unintended Consequences: How Christian Anti-Judaism Spawned Nazi Anti-Semitism, A Judge’s Verdict
with Anthony J. Sciolino

Sciolino began research for his book hoping to discover that the Catholic Church, and Holocaust-era Pope Pius XII, could be exonerated from complicity in one of the worst most staggering attempts at genocide in human history. He discovered, instead, that Christianity’s foundational anti-Judaism enabled widespread silence and inaction from Europe’s religious communities, and that the language of church fathers was even used in systemic campaigns against Jews and other “enemies” of the Third Reich. Join retired judge Anthony Sciolino as he offers a vital examination of one of history’s most disturbing issues.
