In the Netherlands, the Catholic bishops tell parishioners that Catholic police officers are not permitted to aid the Nazis in hunting down Jews.

This ban applies even if the police officers are at risk for losing their jobs for not cooperating with the Nazi occupation government of the Netherlands. No Catholic or Protestant leaders in Germany ever issue similar instructions.
