Yad Vashem's Response to the Vatican's Announcement to Open its Pius XII Archives

04 March 2019

Yad Vashem commends the Vatican's decision to open the Pius XII Archives, covering the years 1939-1958. For years, Yad Vashem has called for the opening of these archives, which will enable objective and open research as well as comprehensive discourse on issues related to the conduct of the Vatican in particular, and the Catholic Church in general, during the Holocaust.

 

Yad Vashem expects that researchers will be granted full access to all documents stored in the archives.
