From April 12 – 19, the University of Minnesota Duluth will host a series of events commemorating the Holocaust. Regrettably, we have learned that some of them promise to unfairly portray the role of the Catholic Church.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue has prepared a five-page report responding to what is publicly known about these events [to read it click here]. Copies are being sent to the President of the University of Minnesota; the Chancellor at the University of Minnesota Duluth; the panelists involved in the events; select professors on campus; the student newspaper; student groups; the media; and leaders in both the Catholic and Jewish communities in Duluth.

All we want is for intellectual honesty to prevail. What we abhor is political propaganda, especially as it serves to undermine good Catholic-Jewish relations.
