Six years ago, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, a young Harvard political scientist, ignited a historical . In an effort to rebut these critics, Goldhagen has since reached for bigger fish.

Six years ago, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, a young Harvard political scientist, ignited a historical controversy with his book Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust. He asserted that "ordinary Germans" eagerly took part in a national crusade to eliminate Jews because of widespread anti-Semitism, not peer pressure, coercion, or ignorance. In his latest book, A Moral Reckoning: The Role of the Catholic Church in the Holocaust and Its Unfulfilled Duty of Repair, he takes his moral hammer to the Catholic church.

Daniel Jonah Goldhagen cuts through the historical and moral fog to lay out the full extent of the Catholic Church’s . But Goldhagen goes further. He develops a precise way to assess the Church and its clergy’s culpability, which was more extensive and varied than has been supposed.

Daniel Jonah Goldhagen cuts through the historical and moral fog to lay out the full extent of the Catholic Church’s involvement in the Holocaust, transforming a narrow discussion fixated on Pope Pius XII into the long-overdue investigation of the Church throughout Europe. He shows that the Church’s and the Pope’s complicity in the persecution of the Jews goes much deeper than has been previously understood. The Church’s leaders were fully aware of the persecution.

A Moral Reckoning book. With his first book, Hitler’s Willing Executioners, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen dramatically revised our understanding of the role ordinary Germans played in the Holocaust.

But this study of the Catholic Church and the Holocaust is a work of moral evaluation. The third part of his book is the most original. It treats the Church as a rigidly authoritarian institution that has betrayed not only Jews but also Catholics

But this study of the Catholic Church and the Holocaust is a work of moral evaluation. Here again, Goldhagen is more concerned with. It treats the Church as a rigidly authoritarian institution that has betrayed not only Jews but also Catholics. It therefore has, in Goldhagen's eyes, a duty to confront its own offenses and sins of omission, make amends with the victims, and reform itself.

In this book Daniel Jonah Goldhagen cuts through the historical and moral fog to lay out the full extent of the Catholic Church's involvement in the Holocaust, transforming a narrow discussion fixated on Pope Pius XII into the long-overdue investigation of the Church throughout Europe. He shows that the Church's and the Pope's complicity in the persecution of the Jews was much deeper than has been understood. The Church's leaders were fully aware of the persecutions and they did not speak out and urge resistance. Instead, they supported many aspects of the persecution.

With his first book, Hitler’s Willing Executioners, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen dramatically revised our understanding of the role ordinary Germans played in the Holocaust. What emerges is a work that goes far beyond the familiar inquiries-most of which focus solely on Pope Pius XII-to address an entire history of hatred and persecution that culminated, in some cases, in an active participation in mass-murder.

What emerges is a work that goes far beyond the familiar inquiries-most of which focus solely on Pope Pius XII-to address an entire history of hatred and persecution that culminated.

Daniel Goldhagen raises a fundamental moral challenge in this volume which no sensitive person, especially a Catholic, can ignore. Why did the Catholic Church not respond to Hitler's genocidal attack on the Jews of Europe with greater protest and compassion? He rightly argues that Christianity has presented itself as a religion of love. But any manifestation of this tradition of love and concern appeared to vanish during the Holocaust era, especially with regard to the Jews.
