The chairman of the London-based Holocaust Educational Trust called on Pope John Paul II to open the Vatican archives so that researchers can examine the conduct of church leaders during the Holocaust. Lord Greville Janner’s call followed a Day of Pardon Mass in the Vatican during which the pope sought forgiveness for the church’s “mistrust and hostility” toward other faiths, but omitted any specific reference to the Holocaust.
