Christian Theologians in the Third Reich

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

During the Third Reich, a group of German Protestant theologians, motivated by racism and tapping into traditional Christian theological anti-Judaism, redefined Jesus as an Aryan and Christianity as a religion at war with Judaism.
In 1939, these theologians established the Institute for the Study and Eradication of Jewish Influence on German Religious Life, which was financed by the Protestant church and flourished successfully until 1945.
The Institute’s members – over 200 professors, bishops, and pastors – published a new version of the Bible and hymnal purged of Jewish references, as well as “research” on Judaism aimed at supporting Nazi measures against the Jews. This event will take place at 1:00 pm ET/8:00 pm IT
