    «Many other letters were sent to the Holy See on the same subject [to help the persecuted Jews], but they were never answered.» Hubert Wolf himself in an lecture of November 5th 2009 at the University of Vienna said that Pacelli, the future Pius XII, who as Secretary of State received these letters, countless since 1933, did not transmit a single one of them to pope Pius XI (with exception of the letter of Edith Stein). This new "funding" was than reported only on the webpages of the archdiocese of Vienna, in German obviously: http://stephanscom.at/news/articles/2009/11/09/a17609 «According to Wolf, "Pius XI wasted his big chance [in 1928]. It took decades and more than six million murdered Jews for the Church to summon the courage to cleanse its relationship with the Jews of anti-Semitism ..."» As if the decree of 1928 had been "his big chance"! Pius XI at the beginning seems not to have been much concerned with the persecuted Jews, but at latest since 1938 it became his greatest concern and he didn't miss an occasion to speek out against anti-semitism and the racial laws, but he was "silenced" and even censored by Pacelli, the future Pius XII. Since the partial opening of the Vatican archives the proofs for this are multiplicating, but Wolf, as most apologists of Pius XII, prefers to conceal the contrast between the two popes. If Pius XI hadn't died early in 1939 (and hadn't been succeded by the very "diplomatic" Pius XII) history may have taken an other way, as also many contemporaries of him affirm: "under Pius XI the Holocaust couldn't have happened."
