Lesson 1 - The Nazis and the Churches

Lesson 1 - The Nazis and the Churches

In this sequence of lessons we examine Hitler's public and private view upon religion and the future of Christianity in a Nazi Germany. We explore the response of the Nazis to the Churches - Control, Weaken and Destroy. We will examine how successful each of these policies were and the impact of them on the Church in Germany and the response of the people. You will have an opportunity to look at individual religious leaders and examine their stances towards Nazism.

The final activity will be to produce a presentation which will explore teh hinge question:

"The Churches were willing to collaborate with the Nazi Regime in the years 1933-41" How far do you agree with this statement.
