Editorial Reviews

Review

"Probst provides us with a detailed exegesis of each of his sources, which taken together thoughtfully challenge the supposed discontinuity between premodern anti-Judaism and modern antisemitism." —H-Judaic



"[B]y introducing us to new figures and showing us how three different church groups in Germany responded to 'The Jewish Question,' this book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the churches under Nazism." —Lutheran Quarterly



"A close look at specific ways in which Protestant theologians and pastors used and reacted to Luther in their teaching and preaching under Nazism.... In his treatment of the supposed disconnect between anti-Judaism and anti-Semitism, Probst shows how German Protestants during this period [following Luther] combined theological opposition to Jews with irrational, anti-Semitic stereotypes.... An important and useful book." —Robert P. Ericksen, Kurt Mayer Professor of Holocaust Studies, Pacific Lutheran University



"This book is clearly a worthwhile read for a Jewish audience unaware of the basis of Protestant anti-Semitism as a component of the overall phenomenon." —AJL Reviews



"Probst is to be lauded for presenting an insightful account of the convoluted echoes and reverberations of this deeply problematic aspect of Luther’s legacy within German Protestantism over the longue durée." —German Studies Review



"Probst illuminates the grim reality of Germany from 1933 to 1939, an era in which the Nazis disavowed Enlightenment humanitarianism and internationalism in its various forms and turned the secular state against the most prominent beneficiaries of the Enlightenment, assimilated German Jews." —American Historical Review



"Christopher J. Probst has written a helpful book on an important topic." —HOLOCAUST AND GENOCIDE STUDIES



"Christopher Probst has written an insightful analysis of the ways in which Protestant reformer Martin Luther's anti-Jewish writings were used by German Protestants during the Third Reich." —Contemporary Church History Quarterly



"This is a useful, clearly written, conscientious supplement...." —German History

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Holocaust was/is one of the most horrifying events in history. It was not--as so many previous atrocities have been-- the "child" of ignorance, superstition , famine, or plague, but the planned, calculated, organized program of a highly educated and sophisticated nation. Probst examines the participation of preachers and professors of theology who endorsed and supported the Nazis in their anti-Semitic savagery. A courageous and essential book.
