"An impressive dissection of anti-semitism by an ex-Roman Catholic priest. His starting point is the placing of crosses at Auschwitz and the ensuing controversy over the canonization of Edith Stein. As a Jew, I have understood the presence of anti-semitism but have never understood the historical antecedents. Carroll writes persuasively about the historical growth and, most importantly, the historical choices that were made by Christians that lead to Auschwitz."
