How did Christian churches help to hide Jews?
OK.......here is one who was apart of the Dutch underground. Her and those like her, spurred into action by their Christian convictions, did what they could. Many died in the camps as well, including Ms. Ten Booms family. She barely made it out. I think we often focus on the darkness(what went wrong and the enormity of the darkness), which is right and proper to a point, instead of focusing on the points of light that fought the Nazi's. I believe it would do us well to look at what went right, and learn from it. http://www.soon.org.uk/true_stories/holocaust.htm
During the Holocaust many righteous Christians helped Jews. Some adopted Jewish children. Some built secret closets or room for Jews to hide in. Some let Jews hide in barns. Christians helped Jews sneak out of the ghettos and get false papers. They helped smuggle Jews to Sweden, Switzerland and Israel.
Plenty of people helped the Jews the best they can. These neutral countries helped hide Jews within their borders. The Vatican City Sweden Spain Portugal Several Individuals, helped hide Jews the most famous being Oskar Schindler. Not to mention the Allies who came and liberated the majority of Jews in concentration camps.
He ordered churches, monasteries and convents to hide Jews on Church property, including within the Vatican itself. He obtained false documents for some so that they could escape out of the country. These were just some of the things he did to protect Jews during World War II. Hundreds of thousands were saved.
