  • Religion and the Nazis
    • The two main forms of Christianity in Germany was the Protestant and Catholic Churches
    • The Catholic Church
      • Hitler had made a deal with them in 1933 (Concordat)
        • He said he would protect their religion if they satyed out of politics
      • Hitler did not trust the Catholic Church because it was run by the Pope who was not German
    • The Protestant Church
      • Hitler put a Nazi supporter (Muller) as Archbishop
    • Leaders of the Catholic and Protestant churches remained largely silent throughout.
      • The response of the main religious groups to the Nazis was disappointing
    • The Nazis allowed them to practise their faith and for many this was enough
