Philadelphia Premiere
We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
– Elie Wiesel

Through interviews, rare archival footage and historic documents, GPJFF alum Steven Pressman (50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. & Mrs. Kraus) is back with an exhilarating new film that examines the Catholic Church’s response to the Holocaust, particularly the failure of Pope Pius XII to confront the Nazi regime and denounce its persecution of Jews. An indictment of the Pope’s neutrality policy – a cover for his anti-Semitism and Aryan sympathies – HOLY SILENCE reveals how passivity and complicity are often intertwined.
