'Walka kościelna' w Elblągu w latach 1934-1943
CHURCH STRUGGLES IN ELBING (1934-1943)
Languages of publication
The Evangelical Church of the Old Prussian Union was obliged to preserve its Christian identity during the rule of the NSDAP. Church struggle between two opposing religious groups - German Christians supporting the Nazi ideology, and the Confessing Church rejecting state interference in church affairs, differed significantly in many areas of the Third Reich. In Elbing, the majority of pastors and worshippers, together with church administrators, supported the Confessing Church. However, a minority of German Christians showed their convictions in a very confrontational and definite way. They refused to cooperate with the church's governing bodies and caused many difficulties for their opponents in everyday life.
