Pope Francis: Open the Vatican's Holocaust-Era Files - Gerald Posner Opinion Editorial in The Washington Post
For more than two months I have had an OpEd embargoed at the Washington Post. Tonight the Post released it, and it will run in Sunday's newspaper, just in time for Pope Francis's arrival in D.C. next week. It is my plea to U.S. officials and 2016 presidential hopefuls to ask the Pope to release the church's Holocaust-era files. The Pope is a reformer, no doubt. But will he end the Vatican's outlier stance as the only nation in Europe still refusing to allow access to its World War II files?
