Summary
Describes the attitudes and activities of women's church organizations in Nazi Germany. Antisemitism and support for Nazism were more widespread among Protestant than among Catholic women. Most members of the largest Protestant women's organization, the Evangelische Frauenhilfe, identified with the Confessing Church. Though they negated racism within the Church, they never publicly protested against Nazi antisemitic measures. Describes aid to Jews by a Catholic circle in Berlin, centered around Bishop Konrad von Preysing and Margarete Sommer, director of a diocesan bureau affiliated with the St. Raphael Society. The bureau also gave welfare aid to non-Aryans and sent teams to help those rounded up for transport. After it became clear that the Jews were going to their deaths, Sommer organized a network which helped many Jews to hide. She relayed information about the extermination of the Jews to Cardinal Adolf Bertram, urging him to issue a forceful protest, but the Cardinal regarded her as unreliable and refused to take action.
