Hitler was baptised a Catholic but obviously didn't practice Catholocism as an adult. Instead he persecuted Catholics http://www.churchinhistory.org/pages/leaf-sum/naziperscath.htm. The church helped save Jews:
"the Vatican were directly responsible for sheltering thousands of Jews in the Vatican and in church properties in and about Rome, as well as 3000 in Castel Gandolfo. As a result about 85 per cent of Rome's Jews were saved from deportation and murder." ... from Defender of the Jews.(The Myth of Hitler's Pope: How Pope Pius XII Rescued Jews from the Nazis)

After reading Hitlers Pope try reading the Myth of Hitler's Pope, because nothing is as black and white as people want to make it.
