The 'silence' of Pius XII

From the Hon Gerard Noel Sir, I didn't want to say more on the painful subject of Pius Xll, but felt it would be right to do in view of some further comments (March 22) which not only leave my main argument of March 15 undisturbed but unfortunately make things worse. They do not, moreover, even mention the significance of the fact that the one and only draconian condemnation of Nazism by Pope Pius was made after Hitler's death.

It is sad that Pius's so-called supporters do not accept, or. perhaps, don't fully understand. the one and only explanation that provides a defence for his policy concerning Germany and the Jews.

There may well be further comments and these, I'm sure, will be equally well-meaning, if also, equally invalid. I will of course read them all with interest and forbearance.

Yours faithfully, GERARD NOEL London EC1
