​​The Holocaust-Era Archives of Pope Pius XII: The State of the Question
October 17, 2021, 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. EDT

This virtual program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.

For decades, the Museum and many others have called for the opening of the wartime Vatican archives—16 million pages that could shed light on the actions of Pope Pius XII and his fellow church leaders as millions of Jews and other victims were being murdered across Europe. At last, in 2019, Pope Francis announced they would open in 2020, stating “The Church is not afraid of history.”

Following reflections by Vatican archivist Piero Doria, leading scholars—including the Museum’s Dr. Suzanne Brown-Fleming—will discuss their initial findings and how these documents may lead to a new understanding of this history.

This virtual program is free and open to the public, but reservations are required at ushmm.org/events/popepius. Please register with the email address associated with your Zoom account. 

Elie Wiesel Carving Dedication Events


​To honor Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel’s legacy—defending human rights and combating indifference and intolerance—the Washington National Cathedral added a stone carving of him to its Human Rights Porch in April. The Cathedral and the Museum, in conjunction with the Elie Wiesel Foundation, celebrate Wiesel’s enduring impact as a survivor, teacher, and international voice of conscience.

At this time of rising antisemitism, racism, and group-targeted violence, a reminder of Wiesel’s commitment to the dignity of all people is both timely and necessary. Jon Meacham, the Cathedral’s canon historian, will host leaders across generations in a discussion about Wiesel and the continuing fight for religious freedom, interfaith understanding, and respect for our common humanity.
