The German Church in the 1930s (Catholic and Protestant) (in development)

The 1930s was a turbulent time for the German Church as National Socialism's policy towards the Church was either to control it, or destroy it. The Catholics were quick to sign a Concordat in return, among other things, to dissolve their political party. This concordat was soon broken. The Protestants, already fractured, could form no such coordinated resistance or collaborative measure.
