Giovanni Montini was head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State from 21 June 1963 to his death in 1978, where he ruled as Pope Paul VI.

In 1952, letter marked with a church stamp, former SS-general Otto Skorzeny praised the future Pope Paul VI, then deputy of foreign affairs for the Vatican, for helping fund, harbor, and give safe passage Nazi refugees living in Francoist Spain.[1]
