WWII: When the Vatican was bombed

~John has a couple of posts at Orbis Catholicus. He took part in a tour and here's what he said:
As a story that's never really been told, many don't even know that the Vatican City itself was bombed during World War II. Friday, November 5, 1943 was a quiet morning. Until, they say, five bombs fell on the Vatican from a single, unmarked plane. Here we see some of the remains of that event which they left alone so as to be a silent witness for future generations.
Check out the pictures here and here.
