In Into that Darkness, Gitta Sereny makes the astonishing statement that "very few German or Austrian priests and not one Catholic bishop in all Western Europe was ever arrested or harmed by the Nazis" (p. 283). She does not say how she has determined this despite all the evidence to the contrary. To give an idea as to how mistaken it is to say that very few German or Austrian priests were ever arrested or harmed by the Nazis, here is a list of some who were. This list of German or Austrian priests arrested or harmed by the Nazis is not exhaustive and, for many reasons, it cannot even be completely accurate. For one thing, there are just too many. Priests figuring in newspaper accounts of their arrests were not always named and arrested priests did not always make the news. And newspaper accounts are not always accurate. Many priests were arrested several times and many were held in several different concentration camps. A priest belonging to religious orders could have two different names. Priests in concentration camps did not always declare themselves as such for fear of even harsher treatment. Moreover, since Hitler changed Germany's borders and redefined Germanness, by for instance, considering Alsatians as members of the master race, whether they liked it or not, it is not even completely clear exactly who was a German priest and who was not. There is ample information to be found on these priests. Many of those who survived their ordeals published their memoirs. "And Who Will Kill You" by Bedrich Hoffmann, a priest who was in Dachau for several years contains an almost 300 page list of priests in Dachau.
