The Vatican says it plans to make some of its World War II archives available on the Internet soon in an apparent effort to calm the controversy over Pope Pius XII's actions during the Holocaust.

The Vatican's newspaper announced the plan, saying it will "render service to the historic truth."

However a panel of Jewish and Catholic scholars who examined the 11 volumes of material a decade ago concluded that more information was required to reach a judgment on whether Pius did everything he could to head off the extermination of European Jews.

Some Jews and others contend Pius should have done more, and are angered by Pope Benedict XVI's recent decision to move Pius closer to sainthood.
