Role of Churches in Nazi Germany and Legacies of Antisemitism to be Explored

November 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Rebecca Carter-Chand, Acting Director of the Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust in the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will discuss “The German Churches in the Nazi-Era and the Legacies of Antisemitism.” The event will be held under the auspices of The Gross Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

In 1933, more than ninety-five percent of Germans belonged to a Christian church: two-thirds were Protestant and one-third were Catholic. In this lecture, Dr. Carter-Chand gives an overview of the religious landscape in Germany and explores how the Christian churches responded to the rise of Nazism. She contextualizes Nazi antisemitism within the long history of Christian anti-Judaism in European society and discusses how antisemitism’s legacy continue to be addressed today.
