The new text says that according to his supporters, the Pope's neutrality helped save the lives of many Jews. The Vatican claims that if Pius XII would have been more outspoken and critical of the Nazi regime, it would have caused the death of even more Jews.

Instead the Vatican says, his quiet diplomacy allowed the Church to carry out secret rescue missions.

The text description still includes the point of view of critics, who say he should have said and done more.

The Holy See's ambassador in Israel, Antonio Franco described it as a 'positive evolutio', adding that the text went from straight condemnation to an evaluation.

Pius XII was Pope from 1939 to 1958. Before that he was the papal envoy in the German state of Bavaria. The controversy over his approach has been discussed between the Vatican and Israel, for decades.

Some claim the controversy between both groups has stopped the beatification of Pius XII from going forward.
