Sr. Margherita Marchione, an American nun known for her defense of Pope Pius XII (Pope from 1939 to 1958) against attacks against his character, courage and actions during the Second World War (1939-1945), died on May 19, 2021, at the age of 99. (link)

    After her death, the New York Times published an obituary which contained an imprecision on an important point, regarding the war-time action of Pius XII and a display on the matter shown at the Yad Vashem museum on the holocaust in Jerusalem, Israel.

    William Doino, Jr., an American who is one of the leading scholars on the Pope’s actions during World War II (as well as being a close friend of Sr. Margherita, and a longtime contributor to Inside the Vatican magazine), noted the imprecision in the New York Times obituary on Sr. Marchione, and wrote a letter to the Times asking for a clarification to be published.
