How to rewrite history if you don't like the way it happened: The Vatican wants to change the part that Pope Pius XXII played (or did not play). So they refuse to attend a memorial ceremony, so Yad Vashem will change history for them. If they write under a picture of the Pope that he saved Jews, then it becomes "true." But the Jews remain just as dead:
The Vatican's ambassador to Israel, Archbishop Antonio Franco announced to the Foreign Ministey in Jerusalem that he has decided to participate in the Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony at Yad Vashem, despite his announcement last week that he would not take part in the event.
Franco told Ynet that he had changed his mind after Yad Vashem authorities promised they would reexamine the caption under the picture of Pope Pius XII, whose actions during the Holocaust are disputed. (Lilach Shoval)
