70th Anniversary of Dutch Catholic Bishops Letter Protesting Expulsion of the Jews ( Plus Consequences)

Rorate Caeli. has performed a great service by publishing the full English translation here at 70th anniversary of the Pastoral Letter of the Bishops of the Netherlands  on the deportation of the Jewish population .

After the translation they give the history of the dramatic awful consequences  in how the Nazis responded. Thus from that time as noted it was viewed by both Catholics and Protestants  in order to save lives such explicit condemnation about crimes against the Jewish people would have to be curtailed.
