Christians were not a target. The Holocaust effected European Christians in multiple manners.

Christian anti-Semitism played a huge part in the Holocaust. Christians, such as Martin Luther, thought they were doing the right thing by turning in and murdering Jews.

Other Christians ignored it, and thought staying neutral was best. When really, neutrality and silence helped the Nazis.

Still others, such as Irene Gut Opdyke, Corrie ten Boom, and Irena Sendler, although the minority, risked everything to help protect Jewish people.
