Nazi Germany as a christian state : the 'Protestant experience' of 1933 in Württemberg
journal contributionposted on 2013-03-01, 00:00 authored by Samuel Koehne
This article examines the response of Christians in Germany to the first year of the Nazi state. It responds to Manfred Gailus' call of 'micro-histories' and onsiders how Protestants in Württemberg conceived of 1933 and how they responded to the Nazis' antisemitism. It argues that they drew on a pre-existing myth of national-religious revival in World War I (the 'spirit of 1914') and remained 'actively passive' when it came to antisemitism.
