To hear an interview with Gary and Meredith Krupp conducted in December 2013 on this topic by Shannon Joy, the host of Talking Back on WYSL 1040AM & 92.1FM, please follow this link.
As a politically aware Jewish teenager in Queens, New York in the 1960’s, Gary Krupp shared the prevailing negative opinion of Pope Pius XII, the controversial leader of the Roman Catholic Church during World War II. Today, he is proud to be one of the pope’s most vocal defenders in the Jewish community. He is determined to right an unjust historical distortion, especially considering how Pius XII has been treated since his death in 1958, by the very people he acted to save. According to tradition, the worst character flaw a Jew can have is that of ingratitude. The conspiracy against Pius XII must be exposed and the record corrected.
The World War II papacy is criticized for not acting to save Jewish lives during the horrors of the Holocaust. Gary Krupp’s work, Pope Pius XII and World War II: The Documented Truth, which is based on original documents from the period, reveals Pope Pius XII to be the courageous, compassionate hero he truly was.
Gary Krupp holds the distinction of being the only Jewish man in history to be invested as a Knights Commander of St. Gregory the Great (by Pope John Paul II) and subsequently honored with the Silver Star (by Pope Benedict XVI.) He has also been invested as an Officer Brother in the Order of St. John, an honor he received by consent of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2005.
