The Vatican is trying to put together a new interfaith team to study the Vatican’s World War II archives. According to the New York Jewish Week, the new team will exclude the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations, which has been the Vatican’s traditional partner for such projects. The last group of Jewish and Catholic scholars studying these archives disbanded over the summer after some members said they needed greater access to the archives to answer questions about Vatican behavior during the Holocaust.
