Will the Vatican's secret Holocaust-era archives be published? Rabbi Abraham Skorka,
a good friend of Pope Francis, says the pontiff is interested in opening the archives on wartime Pope Pius XII.
Skorka made the comments in an interview to the Sunday Times, but the report has yet to be officially confirmed by the Holy See. Skorka, a 63-year-old
Argentine rabbi, said he discussed the controversial issue of Pius XII
with Pope Francis during a week he spent in the papal residence, St.
Martha’s House, in September.
