Christian Responses to the Holocaust Christian Responses to the Holocaust

Moral and Ethical Issues

by Dietrich, Donald J., editor

In a Europe overrun by Hitlerís armies and his Nationalist Socialist ideology, Christians were forced to respond to the atrocities being committed against their fellow citizens. This multi-author book explores the many and varied reactions from a range of perspectives. Jewish and Christian authors analyze the spectrum of German Christian responses to Nazi ideas, from endorsement and accommodation to disapproval, loyal reluctance and active resistance, by Protestants and Roman Catholics. Also examined are the responses by the churches institutional leadership and by those in the pew. This scholarly work reveals the complex reality experienced by Christians facing Hitler and is a contribution to the ongoing debate about the relationship between Christianity and National Socialism.
