This English translation of Traude Litzka's scholarly German work treats the Roman Catholic Church's attempt to assist Jews after the 1938 Anschluss transforming the country into a province of Nazi Germany engaged in persecuting Jews and all opposing the Nazi regime. The new regime's hostility to the Church threatened its beliefs and structure, keeping its substantial assistance to the Jewish population secret until the end of World War II.
