Holy Silence

USA • English/Italian with English subtitles

Director: Steven Pressman

Documentary: 72 minutes

A damning failure of moral authority…

The Catholic Church’s response to the Holocaust is re-examined through historic footage, rare documents and contemporary interviews. Pope Pius XI denounced the anti-Semitism taking hold

in 1938 Germany, but his successor adopted a starkly different position. To this day, the inaction and complicity of Pius XII in dealing with Nazism remains a source of deep controversy. What more, if anything, might the Church have done to stop Hitler’s Final Solution? This timely exposé examines all sides of this hotly debated topic.

Led by Steven Pressman, director of Holy Silence
