Abstract:

"Six Million Crucifixions provides an overview of the historical background of key events in the history of antisemitism spanning the time between the death of Jesus up to the end of the Holocaust and beyond. The second part of the book focuses on various specific aspects of Christian Antisemitism, followed by the role of the Catholic and Protestant Churches during the Nazi era and its aftermath. The fourth part provides an overview of the criminal activities that individual clergy as well as the Churches as such may be guilty of and makes a legal study of what a potential indictment may have looked like... The objective of this book is to present the historical background to explain how the Holocaust could have happened, and raise awareness of where antisemitism comes from and why it has not disappeared yet."--Website: http://www.sixmillioncrucifixions.com/About_the_book.html.
