Adolf Hitler is portrayed using a sword to kill a Jew in a church stained glass window.
The extraordinary ecclesiastical work of art remained unnoticed for a full 70 years at the St Jacques Church in Montgeron, south of Paris.
If it had been pointed out at the time of its inauguration – in July 1941.
The official version of the Catholic Church, is that the colorful window display “secret french resistance”. As it was, the colorful window clearly depicts a black fringed Hitler as Herod, the infamous biblical King renowned for slaughtering children.
‘The figure has Hitler’s hair, but his moustache has been hidden behind his arm to avoid serious trouble,’ said Father Dominique Guerin, pastor of the parish.
Now the window is being viewed as a brave symbol of French Resistance during the Occupation of 1940 to 1944.
In the window, Herod is slaughtering St Jacques – French for St James – who represents the Jewish people, using a broadsword.
Local MP Isabelle Bigand-Viviani said:
‘This portrayal of Hitler was an act of artistic and religious resistance. It’s a haunting story showing great nerve on the part of the glassmakers.’

It is simply not the truth, that Catholics in France in July 1941 was offended by Hitler being an declared enemy of the Jewish people.
To the radical opposite, millions of Catholics in France agreed with Hitler, that the Jews were a threat to the stability and security of Europe.
The Pope was gifted the Vatican statehood in 1929, by nobody else than the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.
In 1933 the Vatican signed a peace agreement with Nazi-Germany.
That the Pope hailed Hitler became obvious for all not blind people.
The Papal Nuncio to Berlin celebrated Hitlers birthday with Hitler as late as April 20th 1939.
Hitler’s book “Main Kampf” was not unknown to the Vatican in 1939.
The Krystalnight November 9th in 1938 had displayed Hitler’s “resistance” to the Jewish threats.
To claim that the Catholics in France were a part of the “resistance” as early as in July 1941, is a blunt lie.
Paris was a “peaceful place” this summer, and millions of French Catholics were convinced Hitler would win the war. The allied forces had in the summer of 1941 hardly been able to win a single battle.
The Catholics were rather happy that two great Catholics now were the rulers of Central Europe. Both of them baptized as Catholics, Hitler even a confirmed and blessed “Sunday Catholic”.
Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany by winning almost 40 per cent of the votes. The Catholics had even closed down their political party, and voted for the Nazis without any regrets.
The Catholics looked on the Jews as “Christ-killers”. No doubt that Hitler was their hero, who was going to deal with the “Jewish problem”.
Therefore being a “Jew killer” was considered a noble act, some kind of penance in the service for “god”. That was why the Nazis had written “god with us” on their belts.
