A Documentary Account of the Christian Resistance and Complicity during the Nazi Era

Compiled and edited by Peter Matheson

What was the impact of the Third Reich and the tyranny of Adolf Hitler on the Christian Church? This compilation of 68 documents from 1933-1943 provides sober yet moving answers. These range from radio statements by Adolf Hitler to secret SS reports by Heinrich Himmler to an encyclical by Roman Catholic Pope Pius XI. These documents chronicle the variety of ways the Confessing Church movement of Martin Niemoller and others, the Nazi collaborating German Christians groups, and the Roman Catholic church leaders responded to the totalitarianism of the Third Reich. The author, whose wife was raised in Germany, offers a short introduction to each selection. A rare new copy of an out-of-print book.

Paperback, 128 pages, notes
