Germany, 1890-1945


The Catholic Church 

  • The Nazis were worried about the catholic church as Catholics were loyal to the pope and had Catholic schools and youth organisations
  • In July 1933, he reached a concordat (agreement) with the pope that Catholics were free to worship and schools could continue as they were. In return, the bishops had to swear loyalty to the Nazis and all of the clergy had to stay out of politics.
  • Hitler broke his promises when he banned the Catholic Youth group, closed don Catholic schools that failed to teach the curriculum that other schools had to teach and closed down many schools.
