Historical lessons to learn from Christian fascism and Nazi propaganda during the Third Reich and the staging of Trump to the public
Prof. Susannah Heschel is the Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies and a member of the Women’s and Gender Studies faculty at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. She is the daughter of the renowned Jewish civil rights activist and spiritual leader Rabbi Abraham Heschel, who is well known for his marching alongside Martin Luther King during the Selma, Alabama protests. The King family regarded her father as “one of the great men of our time.” Susannah edited a collection of Rabbi Heschel’s essential teachings for the Modern Spiritual Masters Series. Her very important publication — “The Aryan Jesus: Christian Theologians and the Bible in Nazi Germany” — is the result of 20 years research into the history of anti-Semitic doctrine within the German Christian movement and Catholic Church in Nazi Germany and details how Christianity was perverted to foment a racist doctrine serving the political ambitions of the Nazi regime.
