I read many books about the holocaust. Some of the victims were Jewish. Some say six million. That may be but if it is then they did not suffer the most victims. The Polish lost about 10 million catholics. In Russia they say about 50 Million Catholics were put to death during and after the war. Read “The Gulag Archepelago” Five million escaped Russians were gathered in Europe and returned under agreement to Russia by England, USA, France and Canada all the allies legally approved this return of escaped Russians who it is believed where all executed for treason. Over 42 Million people died as a direct result of the second world war.
Today many catholic people in various countries are made homeless, imprisoned and killed in countries like Sudan, North Korea, Vietnam and China just to mention a few. This victimhood has never stopped it is alive today. We will someday recognise there people as martyrs because their primary crime is being catholic under a moslem or communist regime.
If the question was would I try to protect a person of any nationality or creed or color from unjust persecution the answer would be overwhelmingly yes. Our church under the direction of the Holy Father during the second world war used our religious orders and contacts with various underground organizations to help over 60,000 Jewish people escape from the countries then persecuting them.
We should fight injustice whether against any member of any race, color or creed. Whether by a foreign nation our own government or just a local gang. This may even include how our own children treat others at school. All injustice is a sin. “Be ye afraid of nothing except sin.”
