Evangelical-Lutheran Church Denounces Pastor for Friendly Attitudes to Jews

Hungarian Jews, Deemed 'Unfit to Work,' Waiting to be Taken to Auschwitz Gas Chamber

The leadership of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Bavaria denounces a leading pastor in the German Christian movement for having expressed friendly attitudes towards Jews back in 1929.

According to a newspaper account of the incident, he sent his "best wishes" on the occasion of a dedication ceremony of a synagogue. As a result, the Nazi Party initiates an expulsion process against the pastor.

It doesn't matter that he's a loyal, committed German Christian today; the mere fact that he had anything kind or decent to say to or about Jews at some point in the past demonstrates that he isn't ideologically "pure" enough for the Nazis.
