Jehovah`s Witness/pope nazi

Question
Greetings sir and hope to find you well.  My question is regarding this book I heard about on the radio that says the pope that was on watch during Hitlers  reign did nothing to stop the killing of the Jews and also JW's.  It could be that he was afraid that Hitler would turn on the Catholics but when the war was over still he stayed quite.  So the writer claims that this pope  by not speaking against these murderers made it easier for these murderers to continue killing.  My point being that if so then this can be prophesy being fulfilled as to who the whore of Babylon is.

Answer
The Vatican actually signed a concordant with Hitler before the Holocaust. But Germany is not considered a Catholic nation. It was predominantly Lutheran. So, while the pope was surely complicit in not resisting the evils perpetrated by the Nazis, so were the Lutherans. So were the protestants.

Of course, its always been that way; religious leaders have almost always supported tyrants and their wars.

Expertise

I can answer general Bible questions or questions regarding the teachings of the Watchtower Society, and questions and issues among Jehovah's Witnesses. Special interest is in Bible prophecy and the return of Christ.

Experience

Have been a pioneer minister of Jehovah's Witnesses during the 80's and an appointed elder for about 10 years. Also, I was an approved "expert" on All Experts some years ago, but could not keep up with the questions. I was disfellowshipped for exposing the Watchtower's 10-year partnership with the United Nations and for publishing the book Jehovah Himself Has Become King.
