What Did Faith Communities Stand For? Doctrine and Deed in Nazi Europe

November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

Free

The rise of National Socialism in Germany and the ensuing terror raised profound theological and ethical questions for people of all faiths. While some religious leaders openly supported the Nazi regime, others refused allegiance to the Party or defied the laws and sheltered victims of state-sanctioned hate, even if it meant risking arrest and ultimately, their lives.

Join us for a program to examine how different faith communities, including Jehovah’s Witnesses, Protestants, and Catholics, reacted in the face of the challenges then—and the questions the history poses today.
