Pope Francis: World Powers Failed to Stop Holocaust

Pope Francis waves to crowds as he arrives to his inauguration mass on 19 March 2013.

Pope Francis continues to amaze. He has just made the strongest rebuke of any Pope of the failure of world powers to do anything to stop the Holocaust, when speaking in Turin, Italy, over the weekend. Not only that, but he also used the Hebrew term “Shoah” for the Holocaust when he spoke.

Many liberals around the world have adopted Pope Francis — whether Catholic or not — as their Pope because of how he has taken an “enlightened” stance on issues ranging from homosexuality to the welfare of the world’s poor. Just last week, a new Papal encyclical was leaked in which Pope Francis declares that, not only is climate change real, but that people are directly responsible for global warming.

Now he has acknowledged the failure of the Allied nations to intervene during the Holocaust.

On the failure to do anything to at least bomb the rail lines to the concentration camps, he said, “The great powers had photographs of the railway routes that the trains took to the concentration camps, like Auschwitz, to kill the Jews, and also the Christians, and also the Roma, also the homosexuals. Tell me, why didn’t they bomb [the trains]?”

Interestingly, Pope Francis specifically mentioned homosexuals who were also murdered in the Holocaust in addition to Jews. But some Jews may still be waiting for more of a formal acknowledgement of the Vatican’s own complicity in the Holocaust. The Church made no effort to call on its millions of faithful in Europe to refuse to take part in it or to do anything to help Jews.

The Pope also went on to criticize the world powers, such as England and France, who redrew the maps of Europe after World War I which caused so many of the problems that led to the rise of Hitler, fascism and World War II.

“The great powers, they divided Europe like a cake, ” he said.
