Pope demonstrated particular sensitivity to Jewish issues

Pope John Paul II was widely acclaimed for his unprecedented outreach to other religions. He was, for example, the first pope to pray in a mosque and a synagogue. He was particularly sensitive to Jewish issues, a concern that grew out of his distress at Polish anti-Semitism and the harsh treatment of Jews in Poland during World War II. The future pope was a university student and seminarian in Krakow during the war.
