Daily Post: New Word For Today: December 5, 2017 I watched a documentary today concerning Pope Pius and Hitler. There were many attempts to assassinate Adolf Hitler. I was not aware of all the plots against him. But, I heard a word mentioned and immediately wrote it down. I wasn’t even sure of how it was spelled but afterwards I did some research. The word was: CABAL (pronounced kuh-BAL) It means a small, secret, plotting group. The way they used the word was by saying that “A cabal plotted the dictator’s overthrow.” The documentary showed that while Pope Pius hid Jews in the Vatican for a while, he also turned them over to the Nazi’s when the Vatican was threatened. It was said of the group of Jews that were turned over, (about 500 persons) only a few survived the concentration camps that they were taken to in box cars. It was a very interesting documentary and I learned a lot about the plots against Hitler, that I had never heard about before this.
