The Unholy War free pdf The story of the Catholic Church's role in the persecution of the Jews. In this investigation, David Kertzer argues that the Roman Catholic Church's role in the historical hatred and persecution of Jews in Europe helped make the Holocaust possible. Focusing on the popes, cardinals, bishops, priests and the laity, who were convinced that they were doing God's work, his dispassionate narrative reveals how traditional Catholic forms of dealing with Jews were transformed into modern anti-Semitism. This book contradicts the Vatican's own account of its history.
