The holocaust is an unspeakable evil. How is it possible to speak of it at all? Yet ‘How is one not to speak of it?’ (Elie Wiesel). Traditional Christian anti‐Judaism is a very sorry story and this prepared the ground for Nazi anti‐Semitism. Hitler, nourished by Wagner, believed he was continuing the church's work, though on a pagan basis.

Keywords:   anti‐Judaism, evil, Hitler, holocaust, Wagner
