Item description for The Catholic Church and Antisemitism by Ronald Modras, Tom Stranger, Carol Marinelli, Rachel Fulginiti, Chris Bachalo, Ian Morson, Arthur Nersesian & Scott Silsby...

Interwar Poland was home to more Jews than any other country in Europe. Its commonplace but simplistic identification with antisemitism was due largely to nationalist efforts to boycott Jewish business. That they failed was not for want of support by the Catholic clergy, for whom the ''Jewish question'' was more than economic. The myth of a Masonic-Jewish alliance to subvert Christian culture first flourished in France but held considerable sway over Catholics in 1930s Poland as elsewhere. This book examines how, following Vatican policy, Polish church leaders resisted separation of church and state in the name of Catholic culture. In that struggle, every assimilated Jew served as both a symbol and a potential agent of secularity. Antisemitism is no longer regarded as a legitimate political stance. But in Europe, the United States, and the Middle East, the issues of religious culture, national identity, and minorities are with us still. This study of interwar Poland will shed light on dilemmas that

Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Church and Antisemitism?

The Catholic Church and Antisemitism Poland 1933-1939  Feb 28, 2010
This is an excellent piece of very clear readable writing about a shameful period in human history. It shows how Christian anti Jewish teachings had, after 1700 of such inculcation created an environment where rounding up Jews for the crematoria was rendered very easy for Hitler's murderous armies.

The author, Modras is an honest theologian and practising Catholic. His honest history writing, brimming with direct cited quotations is an indictment of the Polish Catholic clergy.

The book is a cannot-put-down type of non reading, rarely encountered in non fiction.

It is a must read for anyone, like myself, whose parents were Poles born in the late 19th century.
