Liliana Picciotto, ADSS and persecution of Jews in Italy

I am grateful to Dr Natalia Indrimi for permission to use the opening of Liliana Picciotto's excellent article which places the persecution of the Jews in Italy in the context of Actes et Documents.  The complete article may be found on the Primo Levi Center Website given below.

Liliana Picciotto

The death of Pius XI and the succession to the papal chair of his Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli as Pius XII (March 2, 1939), preceded by only few months the outbreak of World War II. 
The pontificate of Pius XII was characterized by a constant quest for neutrality, a goal the new Pope pursued with great determination, as it suited both his personality and his previous role in international diplomacy as the Vatican’s Secretary of State.
