The paper looks at the role played by Christian Churches in Germany supporting the Third Reich and examines the actions of three people involved in the Holocaust: theologian Dieter Bonhoeffer, Elie Wiesel and Pope John Paul II.

From the Paper:

"The Holocaust continues to present one of the most disturbing theological dilemmas of the twentieth century. (Douglas) While many Christians in Germany in both the Protestant and Roman Catholic Churches permitted themselves to be drawn into the political, social and ideological systems that gave birth to the genocide levied by the Third Reich against Europe's Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and other groups, others spoke out and in doing so paid with their lives for their rejection of Nazi ideology."
