"A small glimpse of the work done, the incredible detail to be handled and the risks to be run, is obtained from a report prepared by B'nai B'rith long after the war. In the Bulletin of the Anti-Defamation League for October 1958 the report reads: 'It is known today that, under Pope Pius XII's instructions, 15,000 Jews received asylum in Castel Gandolfo. In convents and monasteries, canonical enclosure was lifted so that Jews of both sexes might find security under Vatican immunity. More than 180 places thus made available a secret asylum given to over 7000 refugee Jews.'"
