Looking for God At Auschwitz

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2006

Pope Benedict's visit to Auschwitz brought with it some hard theological questioning, but also much controversy arising from his failure to mention contemporary antisemitism. Observers have expressed varying degrees of disappointment not only in the omission but also in Benedict's clear assertion that it was the Nazi regime that was responsible for the Holocaust, not the German people, as also in his failure to acknowledge the responsibility - some would say complicity - of the church for the calamity that befell the Jews.
