Synopsis

In the early 1930s, a movement emerged within German Protestantism which had as an aim the full integration of Nazi ideology, German national identity and Christian faith. The Deutsche Christen (German Christians), as they were called, interpreted the Christian faith and the role of the church in society in service of the Nazi revolution. They also married centuries-old Christian anti-Judaism to the Nazis' racial antisemitism and sought to eradicate all traces of Judaism from Christianity. Their publication programme, designed to advance that ideology, included books and pamphlets, radio talks and speeches, as well as liturgies and retranslations of Scripture. Selected documents are presented here, alongside key responses critical of the German Christians.
