Against the Third Reich

Paul Tillich

$55.00

Paperback
"From the Publisher:"During World War II, the US asked Tillich to rally native Germans through a series of radio broadcasts. In these addresses, available in English for the first time, he is passionate and political--urging Germans to recognize the horror of Hitler and to reject a morally and spiritually bankrupt government.

- Publisher "Paul Tillich wrote more than 100 radio addresses that were broadcast into Nazi Germany from March 1942 through May 1944. The broadcasts - through Voice of America - were passionate and political pleas for Germans to recognize the horror of Hitler and to reject a morally and spiritually bankrupt government. Largely unknown in the United States, the broadcasts have been translated into English for the first time, and approximately half of them are presented in this book." "German-speaking listeners heard Tillich's observations on anti-Semitism, the liberation of Europe, resistance to Hitler, and the meaning of Christian faith to war-torn Europe. Tillich urged the defeat of oppressive governments, the securing of the welfare of the European people, and the federation of Europe."--BOOK JACKET.

- Publisher This is the first English translation of about half of the 112 Voice of America radio addresses that prominent Protestant theologian Tillich broadcast into occupied Europe from March 1942 through May 1944. From his first speech on "The Jewish Question" as an issue of Christian roots, Tillich continually urged the German people to abandon their doomed Nazi oppressors. Ironically, the US Army blacklisted him as pro-German before the war ended. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
