Catholics Confronting Hitler

The Catholic Church and the Nazis
Peter Bartley

This book reveals how resistance to Hitler and rescue work engaged many churchmen and laypeople at all levels, and was often undertaken in collaboration with Protestants and Jews. The Church paid a high price in many countries for its resistance, with hundreds of churches closed down, bishops exiled or martyred, and many priests shot or sent to Nazi death camps. Also explained is the often misunderstood actions of Pope Pius XII in his secret battle against Nazi persecution of Jews and Christians.
