A German Christian woman writes to Germany's Foreign Minister to asking why the Nazi leaders don't do more to support a national German church.

The letter says:

"Why don't our rulers declare themselves for the Volkskirche, which is fighting for a living Christianity? With our great leader Adolf Hitler, our previously dead church also experienced the reawakening of a vital spirit. ...

[Julius] Streicher, the Franconian leader, said in a speech: 'The murder of Golgotha is written on the foreheads of the Jews.' Yes — and that is why there is a curse on that people.

Jesus, however, died for us and so we should believe in him and accept him."

The idea of a national Christian church, based on Protestantism and National Socialism, is gaining ground among Christians in Germany.
