Note 1: The list of heads of state above was originally compiled by a Hugo Borreson, from Virginia, but thanks to information that I learned from Catholic critics, in Oct.
Note 2 : After quickly eliminating the relatively few Jews in their country, the Roman Catholic leaders of Croatia unleashed such mindless fury on their other non-Catholic neighbors that even their German Nazi allies were appalled.
Efrain Rios Montt (president of Guatemala from 1982 through 83) was one of the few mass-murdering dictators of Latin America who was NOT a Catholic. Among the many Nazi leaders who were Roman Catholics, in addition to Adolf Hitler, were Josef Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, Reinhard Heydrich, Heinrich Mullerv and Rudolf Hoess, (not to be confused with Hitler's Deputy Fuëhrer and secretary, Rudolf Hess). To be sure, the Roman Catholic Church wants to distance itself from all of these monsters now, but it made no attempt to do so at the time, when it could have made a tremendous impact. Heinrich Himmler (Roman Catholic) was born October 7, 1900, as the son of a secondary school instructor and strict Roman Catholic. As the Reichskommissar in the Netherlands throughout the Third Reich, Arthur Seyss-Inquart (Roman Catholic) was the one most responsible for the Nazi atrocities committed there. Klaus Barbie (Roman Catholic) , called the "Butcher of Lyon" because of his role as chief of the Nazi Gestapo in Lyon, France during the worst period of the Holocaust, 1942-1944, where he took part personally in torturing French resistance fighters. Hans Frank (Roman Catholic) was the Nazi appointed lord of Poland during the worst of the extermination of millions of Jews and Christians.
Josef Kramer (Roman Catholic) the commandant 'butcher of Bergen-Belsen" was born in Munich as an only child and grew up in a middle class family.
Pope Pius XII was quite happy to wield his powerful excommunication tool shortly after World War II to dissuade Italian Catholics from even joining the Communist Party, which was very popular in their country at the time.
In a country where 99% of the population considered themselves "Christians", it should come as no surprise that most of Hitler's henchmen, along with the vast majority of German citizens, were Christians. He wrote in his personal "statement of faith", "We believe that there is a Lord-God in Heaven, who created us, who leads us, who directs us and who blesses us visibly. During the Nuremberg trials, Streicher was asked about his participation in the Nuremberg Race laws of 1935. The leadership of the Nazi regime was a virtual Catholic men's group, a chapter you might say of the Knights of Columbus or Knights of Malta. Otto Wachter, who from 1939 on, as governor of the Cracow district, Wachter organized the persecution of the Jews and ordered the establishment of the Cracow Ghetto in 1941. Ante Pavelic, head of Catholic Croatia, arguably the most murderous regime in relation to its size in Axis-occupied Europe. It is obvious from this episode that the Catholic Church's position was torture and kill all the Jews you like, but don't you dare put a finger on a Catholic priest. Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, the officer who came closer than anyone to removing Hitler with a suitcase bomb was a devout Roman Catholic.
Gordon Zahn was a Catholic social scientist who went to Germany in the 1970's in search of evidence of heroism on the part of Roman Catholics. Kruger provided the training to all bureau command staff, including sergeants, lieutenants and commanders. Kruger's training focused on "common tactical problems and the role leadership plays," according to the police bureau's response to a written public information request.
The Oregonian filed a request for information on what Kruger's training class was called on March 9, and it took the bureau more than two weeks to respond. In late November 2010, Chief Mike Reese announced he was suspending Kruger for 80 hours without pay and ordered him to take "Tools for Tolerance" training because he had erected a public tribute to five Nazi-era German soldiers at a city park while employed by the Police Bureau.

An internal affairs investigation found Kruger brought "discredit and disgrace upon the Bureau and the City," when Kruger nailed "memorial plaques" of five Nazi soldiers to a tree on the east side of Rocky Butte Park sometime between 1999 and 2001.
Kruger was a Portland officer at the time, but was not on duty when he erected the plaques as a shrine. The chief found Kruger violated a bureau directive on professional conduct, and Portland city code, which says no person shall attach anything to property in a city park. The chief said he expected Kruger never to engage in conduct that "denigrates others or their differences" on duty or off duty, and that he participate in a "mentorship arrangement" that the chief and mayor had not defined.
The day's important news, including local and national headlines, delivered every morning.
As senior correspondent for Reuters in Munich from 1936-1941, American Ernest Pope saw the cruel and outrageous behavior of Nazis in their native habitat. Pope knew, saw or interviewed all the top Nazis and dozens of lower-level officials, including some of Hitler's security. Once back in the US, Pope let loose his frustration and ire at what he'd seen—but couldn't write about when he was reporting from Germany.

These four consecutive SA Leadership magazines are from the historic period just prior to and during the Nazi invasion of Poland in the fall of 1939 and contain many photographs not published elsewhere. In the context of these magazines it should be mentioned that in the aftermath of the German and Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939 (two-fifths went to Germany and three-fifths of Poland went to the Soviet Union), the British and French governments declared war on Nazi Germany but not on the Soviet Union!
He was a minister of the ultra-conservative Pentecostal "Church of the Word" based in California and one of the many conservative "anti-communist" dictators supported by the Reagan administration.
We only know of two individuals that Hitler killed personally, his wife Eva Braun, and himself.
He gave up all his properties in Germany in 1939 when his conscience moved him to renounce Hitler and he fled the country.
The Goebbels admired Hitler so much that they gave all the children they had together H-names : Helga, Hilda, Helmut, Holde, Hedda and Heide. At the Nuremberg Trials, he was found guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death. Yet, throughout the 12 year Nazi reign of terror, not one of the multitude of Nazi leaders who were Roman Catholic was ever excommunicated for their crimes against humanity, no matter how monstrous!
In just three months Peron's regime collapsed and he had to flee the country in fear of his life, never to return. Except for a very few who rejected Christianity (like Bormann and Rosenberg), the rest used their influence (whether through belief or political action) to support both Catholicism and Protestantism. The thing that made me so stubborn and probably made me later on cut off from people was his way of making me feel that I had wronged him personally, and that, since I was spiritually a minor, he was responsible to God for my sins. And we believe that this Lord-God sent Adolf Hitler to us, so that Germany may become a fundament for all eternity.". Wachter is mentioned as one of the leading advocates in the General Government who were in favor of the Jewish extermination by gassing and as a member of the SS team who under Himmler's supervision and Odilo Globocnik's direction planned Operation Reinhard, the first phase of the Final Solution, leading to the death of more than 2,000,000 Polish Jews. Mark Kruger of the Portland Police Bureau recently was tapped to provide leadership training to command staff. Mark Kruger of the Portland Police Bureau.Some officers have privately questioned the choice, considering his background.

He described himself as a European and military history buff, but denied any admiration for Nazis, and said he had no knowledge that one of the officers he honored was involved in war crimes. In Munich they ran wild, let their hair down, and indulged in every fantasy money and power could avail them.
With great humour and fast-paced prose, he writes of encounters with Hitler, Hess, Streicher, and many more.
Fluent in Bavarian German dialect, Pope made many friends in Munich with citizens and officials alike. This list features only Catholics who headed the Nazi "axis" nations during the World War II era. In 1941 he had a part in writing a book about his financing of the Nazis called, "I paid Hitler". But at the end, Magda confided to her trusted friend and sister-in-law, "In the days to come Joseph will be regarded as one of the greatest criminals Germany has ever produced. Orthodox Catholics will be happy to learn that, having confessed his sins at the last minute and received the absolution of a priest, he earned eternal happiness in heaven!
During his trial he was still pious enough to proclaim "When I stand before the throne of God I shall be judged innocent". What's more, the ban on membership in the Nazi Party which the Catholic Church had imposed prior to Hitler's successful power-grab in 1933, was actually lifted that year, at the very time that the Nazis gained the ability to actually act on what had only been terrible ideas prior to 1933.
I learned that my father took a religious oath at the time of the birth of my younger sister, dedicating me to God and the priesthood, and after that leading a "Joseph" married life [Catholics are taught that Joseph and Mary never had sex]. Yes, you who called us godless, we found our faith in Adolf Hitler, and through him found God once again. How can anyone say that this pope did "all that he could", when he failed to take this obvious measure so as to make it clear to the millions of Catholic faithful who were enabling the Nazis to carry out their campaigns of mass murder, not only against Jews, but against their fellow Catholics in Poland, that they should have no part in these monstrous of crimes and most mortal of sins? After the war Wachter lived in a Roman monastery "as a monk", under the protection of Bishop Hudal, until 1949, when he died "in the arms" of Bishop Hudal at the Roman hospital of Santo Spirito. He heard jokes from Munichers that could get them thrown in a concentration camp and he poked fun at Nazis whenever he dared.
Apologists for Pius XII who claim that their crimes caused these people to be "automatically excommunicated" miss the point that excommunication isn't intended to tell GOD who is a Catholic and who isn't but to tell THE FAITHFUL whom to shun.
He got about two thirds of them from the two thirds of Germans who belonged to the Protestant churches and the other third from the third of Germans who identified themselves as Roman Catholics. I had to pray and go to church endlessly, do penance over the slightest misdeed – praying as punishment for any little unkindness to my sister, or something like that. The clergy all knew how much Hitler needed all of these helpers and how mad it would have made him if they were to tell the millions of their sheep how horribly sinful it was for them to have any part in the Jewish Holocaust. And the pope himself deliberately chose not to inform the consciences of his German subjects.
