Nineteen months after it was first proposed, an “unusual” agreement was reached this week between the Vatican and Jewish leaders to assemble a team of scholars to study World War II-era Vatican records that have been publicly available for more than 30 years. Jewish leaders cautioned it is only a first step in answering questions about the Vatican’s response to the Holocaust.
