Von Galen and the Jews

(p.96) Chapter Five Von Galen and the Jews
Bishop von Galen

Beth A. Griech-Polelle

Yale University Press

This chapter talks about the relationship von Galen had with the Jews through the years before, during, and after the Second World War. It first considers the plausible explanations why the leaders of the Catholic Church remained silent with regards to the Jewish Question, and then looks at the German Catholics' view of the Jews as a demoralizing and threatening influence in the country. The discussion then presents a short history of the Jews in Westphalia and von Galen's defense of a number of issues, including the Catholics and Hitler's speech on the Jewish Question. Von Galen's dislike of Bolshevism and his image of the Jews is also covered in this chapter.

Keywords:   Jewish Question, Bolshevism, image of the Jews, Westphalia, Kristallnacht, history of the Jews
