Description
During the German occupation of Rome in World War II, Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty ran an escape organization for Allied POWs and civilians, including Jews. Safe within the Vatican state, he regularly ventured out in disguise to continue his mission, earning the nickname "the Pimpernel of the Vatican." By the time the Allies liberated Rome in 1944, O'Flaherty and his collaborators—priests, nuns, and laypeople of many faiths—had saved more than 6500 people. In telling this extraordinary story, this book also addresses the fascinating dichotomy between O'Flaherty and Herbert Kappler, the Gestapo chief in Rome who ordered him killed, and who, after the war, reconciled with the monsignor and even asked him to perform his baptism.
