The great Catholic philosopher Dietrich von Hildebrand spoke with uncommon clarity and courage against Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. How did Hildebrand’s Catholic faith influence his understanding of Hitler’s regime? What similarities and dangers did he see in Communism and National Socialism? What lessons can Catholics in the public square today draw from Hildebrand’s stance against Hitler?
John Henry Crosby, founder of The Hildebrand Project and principal editor of Hildebrand’s memoir My Battle Against Hitler: Faith, Truth, and Defiance in the Shadow of the Third Reich, discusses Hildebrand’s opposition to the Nazi regime with host Michael Hernon, vice president of Advancement at Franciscan University, and panelists Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn of Franciscan University’s Theology Department.
