Online Seminar | Referentin: Catharina Koke | KJR-Dachau

This seminar is dedicated to various forms of protestant resistance in Nazi-Germany. The history of the protestant church between 1933 and 1945 will be made clear as a first step. Linked to terms like Kirchenkampf (church struggle), völkischeReligion (national religiosity) and groups like the Bekennende Kirche (Confessing Church) and Deutsche Christen (German Christians) this history is quite complex at first glance. So, the seminar will at first clarify the various developments within the Protestant Church in Germany and show how they are linked to the topic of National Socialism. The seminar will therefore focus on main developments within the church to form the base for biographic work. This biographic work will ask for the specific reasons and contexts of protestant resistance between 1933 and 1945. 

Finally, the seminar will ask how resistance and protestant resistance are portrayed in the collective memory of Germany after 1945.
