The Persecution of the Catholic Church and the Priests of DachauBy now every school child can cite verbatim about the Jewish Holocaust of six and one half million souls by the Nazis during World War II, but there is another Holocaust of greater numbers, that of the persecution of the Roman Catholic Church by Hitler and the murder or imprisonment of other minorities: this other persecution, excluding the Gypsies, was not based exclusively on race, although the Poles, who were exterminated in the camps were considered racially inferior, but derived from Nazi hatred and fear of Roman Catholics.
Hitler was Luciferian, an apostate, and hated the Church and it was the Church that alone stood as a moral bulwark and reproach against his evil dominion. This forgotten and or discounted holocaust's toll is estimated to be the extermination of eight to ten million people who were either Polish and or Catholics, thousands of them priests and nuns, the two most famous being Saint Edith Stein and Saint Maximilian Kolbe.
What the world does not know and what most Catholics have never known is that the prosecution of the Catholic Church by the Third Reich began as early as the assault on Jewry and was every bit as insidious and odious. The canards that the "Pope was silent," and the charge that the Church is the cause of the Holocaust of the Jews is ironic when the actual historical facts are surveyed.
