Francis supports the goals of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation

"There is only one thing worse than Auschwitz itself...
and that is if the world forgets there was such a place."

The Vatican has pledged 100,000 euros ($125,000) towards preserving the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz in southern Poland, the site's museum said Monday.

"Given our limited resources, the amount is small," Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin told AFP. "But it is an expression of our full support for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation" that oversees the upkeep of the former camp, where the Nazis gassed hundreds of thousands of prisoners in occupied Poland during World War II.

The Vatican is the 31st state to donate to the foundation, which has received 102 million euros in pledges, including 60 million euros from the
German government.

Wartime pope Pius XII has long been accused of remaining silent in the face of the Holocaust and the mass murder of millions of Jews.

But Pope Francis defended him in June, saying he did not know why everyone "picks on" Pius XII and the Church.

The pontiff also criticized Allied forces for failing to bomb the railway lines that led to the camps.

Auschwitz-Birkenau has become a symbol of Nazi Germany's genocide of European Jews, one million of whom died at the camp in the city of Oswiecim from 1940 to 1945.

More than 100,000 others including non-Jewish Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war and anti-Nazi resistance fighters also died there, according to the museum.

More than one million people visit the museum each year.

“Considering the significance of the goal of the Foundation and the support it received from the Polish government, the decision to send support in the amount of 100 thousand Euro has been taken. This sum is so modest due to the limited possibilities. However, this is an expression of full support for the project of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation,” wrote cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State.

According to the director of the Auschwitz Memorial Dr. Piotr M.A. Cywiński, who is also the President of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, the Vatican support is a very important signal. “In it, I see a deep belief about fundamental role of experiencing Auschwitz and the Shoah for the contemporary man, for his choices, problems, and responsibilities. I see hope that our current look into the past may bring us distinct ethical instructions for the future,” said Dr. Cywiński.


  1. Perhaps an appropriate time to read this again:
    The Apostate's Creed by Michael Hoffman
    "I believe in one Holocaust, conceived in Hollywood, born of the New York media: and in Six Million Judaics, who suffered under Adolf Hitler and were gassed, made into lampshades and cremated. In the 21st century they arose again, to haunt the living and the dead. I believe in Elie Wiesel and the geysers of blood, and Arnold Friedman and the color-coded crematory smoke; the holy Shoah biz Church, the communist saints, no forgiveness of German sins, the resurrection of lies, and the shelf-life everlasting of the Auschwitz gas chamber stories. Amen.

    1. Never mind that Jew descendant Stalin makes Hitler look like a piker.

      You might want to add this pledge:

      I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United Nations of the world.
      And to the world government for which it stands.
      All nations, under Antichrist, indivisible,
      with Masonry, and Zionism for all.

  2. 100k Euros … you can't put a price on JPII kneeling at 'The Death Wall' at Auschwitz and then proclaiming that Auschwitz is the new Golgotha and a myriad of other such outrages from Novus Ordo prelates. Such are of more value than all the shekels in the world for Holocaustolatry exaltation.

    1. You are correct Maurice. Francis had his moment with his 'Adam speech' at Yad Vashem. Here's Pope Saint John Paul II's quote:

      "Auschwitz, along with so many other concentration camps, remains the horribly eloquent symbol of the effects of totalitarianism. It is our duty to make a pilgrimage to these places, in mind and heart, on this 50th anniversary. As I said at the Mass celebrated in 1979 at Brzezinka near Auschwitz: 'I kneel at this Golgotha of the modern world.'"(Message of John Paul II on 50th Anniversary of the end of WWII in Europe, May 8, 1995)

    2. Are sionist talmudic jews much betterthan those they criticise with such numbing hatred?

  3. Gaza is a concentration camp ,regularly bombed to bits ,to insure the Palestinians never have any quality of life there .Over 11 million Ukrainians were starved to death by stalin not to mention those who perished in Siberia ,but as one talmudic rabbi said the lives of millions of goya are not worth the finger nail of 1 jew.

  4. One should never give any money to the church - it needs to be starved of it until it collapses financially
