Six Million Crucifixions
How Christian Teachings About Jews Paved the Road to the Holocaust
By Gabriel Wilensky
Did Christianity play any role in the millenarian hatred towards Jews that led to the paroxysm of murder known as the Holocaust?
Six Million Crucifixions provides an answer to the question, “What could have possibly motivated ordinary Germans and their helpers throughout Nazi-occupied Europe to hate Jews so much as to drag thousands of Jewish men, women and children to a forest, and shoot them in the head at close range one by one, getting blood, pieces of brain and splinters of cranial bone splattered all over them after each victim, and continue to do it all day long, day after day?”
About the Author
Hi! I am Gabriel Wilensky, and I am the author of Six Million Crucifixions: How Christian Teachings About Jews Paved the Road to the Holocaust, a book that shows a particularly pernicious consequence of abandoning reason and embracing superstition.
Gabriel Wilensky’s book challenges us to consider the role of religion in enabling genocide.

Gabriel Wilensky’s volume is an excellent historical survey of the persistence of antisemitism and its roots in Christian teachings. It will prove useful for both students and the general public.
