catholics of the holocaust

catholics

Who were they?

german catholics such as priest,nuns,and bishops and they were first with the nazi party, but not all catholics were part of the nazi party.

Why did hitler want to eliminate them, and what happend to them ?

The reasson Hitler wanted to elimate the catholics because they started to speak up. Catholics spoke up to Germans because they found out what they were doing to the Jews. They spoke out and hitler had them arrested, legel traps, and they were murder. They even brought some Catholics to gas chamber to die. Some Catholic priest they saved thousands of jews, and went to hide 40000 jews, and those catholics who were caught got killed. S o the catholics were heros.
