    during that time. Scandinavian volunteers were among the last troops to defend Berlin against the Soviets. The Irish had diplomatic relations with the Nazis throughout the war. Some Catholic priests were very brave in defending Jews and other victims.

    But the overall institutional affinity between Rome and the Fascist dictatorships cannot be denied. Hitler and the rest were anti-communists and the soviets had actually taken measures against the power (and wealth/property) of religion. That was enough for the pope and his crew: the Nazis were their fair-haired boys. STS.

    I understand why Rome might want to "forget" those times, but believe that they should not be permitted to do so without contest.
