ADSS 10.133 Luigi Maglione to Angelo Rotta - steps to be taken for the Jews of Hungary.

Reference: Telegram 222 (AES 2710/44)

Location and date: Vatican 05.04.1944

Summary statement: Request steps to be taken for the Jews.

Language: Italian


His Excellency, the Apostolic Nuncio in Berne (1) has sent the following:

“Israelite associations urgently ask the Holy See to intervene through the Cardinal Primate (2) and the Apostolic Nuncio to Hungary in favour of their (3) coreligionists”.

I leave it to Your Excellency to judge what further steps and appropriate actions are possible. (4)
(1) Filippo Bernardini (1884-1954), nuncio 1935-1953.
(2) Justinian Seredi (1884-1945), Bishop of Ezstergom and Primate 1927-1945.
(3) The original text reads “Libanesi” – “Lebanese” – which makes no sense.  It was most likely a misreading of “loro” – “their”.
(4) See ADSS 10.137.
