Fritz Stern Speech
Stern has spent a lifetime studying the emergence of the Nazi movement in Germany and lists the conditions he believes promoted it's growth including the link between religion and politics. Similarities I'm sure you can recognise when you see them. Shining Light in Dark Corners tracked down the speech
Stern made when he accepted the Leo Baeck Medal Nov 14.
"When I saw the speech my eyes lit up," said John R. MacArthur, whose book "Second Front" examines wartime propaganda. "The comparison between the propagandistic manipulation and uses of Christianity, then and now, is hidden in plain sight. No one will talk about it. No one wants to look at it."
