Well, then given such deep and, I'm sure, sincere feelings about the Holocaust, Ratzinger should have no objection to this:
quote:

A German Jewish leader touched a sore spot in relations with Catholics on Friday when he urged Pope Benedict to open up all the Vatican's archives dealing with World War Two and the Holocaust.

Welcoming him on a historic visit to a synagogue in Cologne, Abraham Lehrer told the German-born pontiff he had a special responsibility to open files that critics say would show how much Pope Pius XII knew about the Nazi slaughter of Jews.

He was enrolled in the Hitler Youth and, at 18, was drafted into the German army. He underwent basic training, then risked execution by deserting and returning home a few days before the war ended.

Which was less of a risk than staying and fighting, but let's not accuse the leader of the Catholic faith, whose job description reads "spokesman for the Lord our God on earth", of being an opportunistic prick. I'm sure he got the position through shear luck and good looks.

He said the Catholic Church stands for the values of tolerance, respect, and peace and Jews and Christians should work together to defend, promote and uphold human rights.
