Yoffie's comments are representative of many people who share the frustration of many historians who are waiting for the opening of the archives for the war years, and I take his comments very seriously. I do not agree with the oft-expressed hope or belief that the archives will tell us everything. I remain convinced that the broad or big picture is known and has been known for nearly fifty years and made more clear through the publishing of ADSS. The opening of the archives for the 1939-1945 war will add detail and nuance, but not, I believe, alter the generally accepted history of the period. Nor will it silence those who indulge in conspiracy fantasies and the like, or those who believe Pius should be canonised by the Catholic Church without further delay.
Yad Vashem's mistake.
