Pius XII as Pius IX: children kidnappers still a paragon for Christianity
We learned that the Congregation of the Holy Office and the Pope Eugenio Pacelli, Pius XII, on October 20th 1946, issued a disposition regarding Jewish children entrusted to Catholic institutions, during Nazi persecution, according to which the children who were baptized should not be returned to their families or to Jewish Institutions, while those children who were not baptized could be returned to their parents, but not to Jewish Institution or to other non-Catholic institutions. Similar disposition were issued in countries under Nazi occupation and, before, in countries under Christian occupation.
In Christian Europe Jewish Institution always asked for the opening of baptismal records to find traces, in different ages, of the thousand of Jewish children entrusted to Catholic institutions and never returned to their families or to their community. The Chief Rabbi of Ukraine, Jacob Dov Bleich, documented thousand cases of children removed from parental authority, and – while talking about interreligious dialog – he underlines the obligation of the Catholic Church to report to Jewish communities on the fate of their children. “Until then, the souls of their parents cannot rest. Until then, their personal Holocaust continues”.
In contrast with Jewish Laws, with Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International human rights treaties proclaimed since 1789, and with the First, Second and Third Geneva Conventions, proclaimed in 1864 e 1929, and with the Declaration of the Rights of the Child of 1924, the Congregation of the Holy Office and the Pope Pius XII, organized – taking advance of the Nazi persecution, after having supported and hushed deceitfully the racist scale of devastation and with the pretext of saving their life – the kidnapping of Jewish children on European territories. An ethnocide started long time ago: Pius IX with the Mortara case in 1859 is just an example.
The Holy Office and Pius XII, just after the conclusion of Nuremberg Trial, October 1st 1946, issued the disposition for the kidnapping of Jewish children. The time was chosen to avoid incrimination for point 4, Crimes against humanity, crimes like murder, extermination, slavery, deportation and other inhuman acts committed against civilian population, before and after the war, or persecution for political, racial o religious reasons. The time was chosen also to avoid that their criminal activity could be forbidden by the Fourth Geneva Convention, convened in 1946 and adopted soon after.
Kidnapping and undue influence upon non Christian minors, for contemptible reasons like forced conversion, are a crime against humanity. Even if today Eugenio Pacelli and the Congregation of the Holy Office cannot be put on trial, nevertheless those who praise their criminal activities, for example with a beatification, are responsible of apology of crimes against humanity and should be persecuted according to:
- Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, December the 9th 1948, Article 2: “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”
- Fourth Geneva Convention, August the 12th 1949, and related Protocols, article 24: “The Parties to the conflict shall take the necessary measures to ensure that children under fifteen, who are orphaned or are separated from their families as a result of the war, are not left to their own resources, and that their maintenance, the exercise of their religion and their education are facilitated in all circumstances. Their education shall, as far as possible, be entrusted to persons of a similar cultural tradition.”
- Convention on the Rights of the Child, November 20th 1989, Article 5 “States Parties shall respect the responsibilities, rights and duties of parents or, where applicable, the members of the extended family or community as provided for by local custom, legal guardians or other persons legally responsible for the child, to provide, in a manner consistent with the evolving capacities of the child, appropriate direction and guidance in the exercise by the child of the rights recognized in the present Convention.”; Article 7 “The child shall be registered immediately after birth and shall have the right from birth to a name, the right to acquire a nationality and. as far as possible, the right to know and be cared for by his or her parents.”; Article 8 “1. States Parties undertake to respect the right of the child to preserve his or her identity, including nationality, name and family relations as recognized by law without unlawful interference. 2. Where a child is illegally deprived of some or all of the elements of his or her identity, States Parties shall provide appropriate assistance and protection, with a view to re-establishing speedily his or her identity.”; Article 9: “States Parties shall ensure that a child shall not be separated from his or her parents against their will ... Where such separation results from any action initiated by a State Party, such as the detention, imprisonment, exile, deportation or death (including death arising from any cause while the person is in the custody of the State) of one or both parents or of the child, that State Party shall, upon request, provide the parents, the child or, if appropriate, another member of the family with the essential information concerning the whereabouts of the absent member(s) of the family unless the provision of the information would be detrimental to the well-being of the child.”
- Italian Law n. 205/1993 (on discrimination, hate or violence for racist, ethnicist, nationalistic or religious reasons) that punish who incite to commit discriminatory action and forbid those organizations, associations or groups who incite to commit discrimination or violence for racist, ethnicist, nationalistic or religious reasons. The law punish also the member of such organizations with prisons term from one to six years.
Shoah is the apex of two thousand years of Christian persecutions against the Jewish people. The disposition of the Holy Office of October 20th, 1946, transmitted with the Pious XII approval to the Christian organs, is the direct continuation of that persecution of which the Christianity is materially and morally principal responsible, since its birth, with crimes ranging from murder and extermination, to reduction in slavery and deportation and all the inhuman acts against the civilian populations, in particular persecution for political, racial or religious reasons, as forced conversions, undue influence upon minors, transfer of children from a group to another.
For this reason the Pius XII Beatification Process represents a continuation of anti-Semite activities and of Shoah.
We ask to international organisms and to Christians of good will to act on the Christian institutions so that they put at disposal the baptismal records and names of people kidnapped from their families and community, and the list of institutions and individuals responsible for their forced conversion.
We ask Jewish institutions to endorse such a request, and put an end to the interreligious dialogue and turn it into a negotiation.
