A Church Divided: German Protestants Confront the Nazi Past
by Matthew Hockenos, assistant professor of history
Indiana University Press, 2004

During the Nazi years, Germany’s many Protestant churches formed various alliances, with one group openly aligned with the Nazis and others either noncomittal or cautious in their opposition to the regime. Postwar debates, however, which addressed the consequences of collaboration with the Nazis, involved every group and centered on issues of belief that were important to all. In tracking the divergent paths taken by prominent pastors, church leaders, and theologians as they sought to explain the church’s role in Nazism, Hockenos brings to light some long-standing divisions within Protestantism over the relationship between Jews and Christians, church and state, and Lutherans and Reformed Protestants.
