Christianity and the Holocaust of Hungarian Jewry

Hierczl, a Hungarian Jew who survived the holocaust, provides a well written and well documented account of Christian anti-Semitism in Hungary from 1880 to 1944. He shows how religious arguments were used to justify harsh anti-Semitic legislation in the years leading up to the war. Hierczl builds his case using extensive quotations of church members involved in this debate and proves that their actions were sanctioned by those at the highest levels of the Catholic hierarchy.
