Jantzen, Kyle. “Ambrose Book Talk: Faith and Fatherland.” Public lecture, Ambrose University Library, Calgary, AB, October 2009.

This video presentation is offered here in four parts, ranging from 10 to 18 minutes in length.

Part one introduces the German “Church Struggle” as a conflict within the German churches and also between church and state, over the implications of Nazi ideology and government for the German churches. It also introduces questions from local church history, which complicate the commonly accepted narrative of these events. Watch/listen to the video here.

Part two explains why the emergence of a National Socialist government in 1933 seemed to serve as a catalyst for German Protestant renewal, and why clergy were so often particularly eager supporters of Adolf Hiter, the new German leader. Watch/listen to the video here.

Part three examines race, euthanasia, and antisemitism within the church, as well as exploring the possibilities of resistance within German Protestantism. Watch/listen to the video here.

Finally, part four takes up the story of the Martin Luther Memorial Church in Berlin, a church built to celebrate the fusion of National Socialist and Christian ideology and symbolism. Watch/listen to the video here.
