Since the Vatican opened its post-1939 closed archives earlier this year, historians are gaining new insight into how one of the world’s most influential institutions, the Catholic Church, confronted—or failed to confront—the Nazi regime, particularly its persecution of Jews.
Holy Silence, a thought-provoking and timely new documentary, examines the role of Vatican and US leaders in shaping the Church's response to the rising Nazi threat and antisemitism spreading across Europe.
Join us for a live conversation with an expert panel to explore this history, including how the Church's response influenced its followers.
Participants can watch Holy Silence independently at no cost with a password-protected link before and after the virtual event. Register today to receive film access details.
