Pope Benedict XVI referred specifically to anti-Semitism and wartime Jewish suffering. “Today’s humanity must not forget Auschwitz and the other ‘factories of death’ where the Nazi regime tried to eliminate God in order to take his place,” he said. Many saw his remarks as a response to Jewish groups’ criticism that he did not explicitly mention anti-Semitism and the Jewish victims of the Nazis when he spoke at Auschwitz on Sunday.
