Giovanni Palatucci was presented as an ‘Italian Schindler’, and for the Vatican as possible saint. Now he is exposed as a Nazi Collaborator.
He has been called the Italian Schindler, credited with helping to save 5,000 Jews during the Holocaust.
Giovanni Palatucci, a wartime police official, has been honored in Israel, in New York and in Italy, where squares and promenades have been named in his honor, and in the Vatican, where Pope John Paul II declared him a martyr, a step toward potential sainthood.
What they show, said Dr. Indrimi, who coordinated the research, is that Fiume had only 500 Jews by 1943, and that most of them — 412, or about 80 percent — ended up at Auschwitz, a higher percentage than in any other Italian city.
The research on Palatucci found that rather than being police chief, he was the adjunct deputy commissary responsible for enforcing Fascist Italy’s racial laws. What’s more, his deportation to Dachau in 1944 was not related to saving Jews but to German accusations of embezzlement and treason for passing plans for the postwar independence of Fiume to the British.
This alternative version of Palatucci’s life made international headlines earlier this month after the Centro Primo Levi sent a letter to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, apprising them of the fact that an exhibit contained inaccuracies about Palatucci, reports The New York Times.
This letter summarized the Centro’s research — gathered with the help of more than a dozen scholars reviewing hundreds of documents — and prompted the museum to remove Palatucci from the exhibit, according to The Times.
Over the years Palatucci has been posthumously honored by New York City, declared a martyr by Pope John Paul II, given an award in his name by the Anti-Defamation League and listed on Israel’s Righteous Among the Nations list of Holocaust heroes. But in the wake of the newly reported information, several organizations have said they will be conducting their own investigations.
Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial, which had added Palatucci to its “Righteous Among the Nations” list, will examine the research, according to the Times.
Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi told the paper that the Catholic Church was also looking into the matter.

The fraud linked to Giovanni Palatucci has been hailed by the Vatican. The Papacy desperately needed one of their own to be declared a “righteous gentile”.
Without any records of Roman Catholics opposing the fascists to save Jews, it will not be possible to lift Hitlers Pope towards sainthood: Pope Pius XII will not be declared home in Heaven, and one of the miracle makers of the Church.
The truth is that both Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler them selves were Roman Catholics. They made a “peace treaty” with the Vatican, so that the pogroms could continue without the interference of the priests and bishops.
If you look back in modern history, you will find it even more fascinating to see that the Vatican was gifted to the Pope by the Fascists.
I 1929, Mussolini gifted the Pope the Vatican statehood. In return, the Pope ‘”accepted” that Roman Catholicism became the new state religion of Fascist Italy.
Are you still a member of this “Church”, who have the Fascists leadership in Italy as their modern supporters and contributors?
18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendour. 2 With a mighty voice he shouted:
Revelation 18: 1-4
‘“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!”
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.’
Warning to escape Babylon’s judgment
Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
‘“Come out of her, my people,
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
If you want to escape the fire of Hell, you better run. Run for your life, and beg Jesus the Messiah for mercy.
