Description: In June 1938, after his attempts at diplomacy with Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy had failed, Pope Pius XI ordered an American, Father John LaFarge, to compose an encyclical denouncing racism and anti-Semitism. LaFarge, with the help of two other priests, produced a draft of Humani Generis Unitas (The Unity of the Human Race).

But after Pope Pius XI died early in 1939, his successor, Pius XII, remained silent as Nazi Germany was carrying out its Final Solution. The unpublished encyclical was buried in the Vatican's archive, its three authors bound by a vow of silence. For decades Vatican scholars questioned the document's very existence, until Thomas Breslin, a Jesuit seminarian, uncovered the manuscript in the late sixties.

Here, published for the first time, is the encyclical the Church kept hidden from the world, along with an engrossing account of Passelecq and Suchecky's painstaking investigation. The Hidden Encyclical of Pius XI sheds new light on the Church's failure to alert the world to the true nature of fascism on the eve of World War II.
