A quotation from Felix FRANKFURTER, though even this will be gigged by some:

​FRANKFURTER (applicable also to Pius XII, FDR on Holocaust) :


“Fluctuations of historic judgment are the lot of great men, and Roosevelt will not escape it … But if history has its claim, so has the present. For it has been wisely said that if the judgment of the time must be corrected by that of posterity, it is no less true that the judgment of posterity must be corrected by that of the time.”

- Felix Frankfurter
