| A recently
published study on the life and work of my grandpa Wilhelm Strohm
(1902-1937) as a priest in the deaconry
school of Rummelsberg between 1928-1936 has been published
by my uncle Albert in the Journal of
Bavarian Church History, Vol. 68/1999, p.133ff. The document
is written in German, here is my little abstract in english.
As his father Christian,
Wilhelm Strohm studied theology, and became a lutherian priest.
After short engagements as a vicar in various Bavarian cities
he joined the deaconry school Rummelsberg near Nuremberg and
acted as the house father to the young priests. In his younger
years, he obviously sympathized with the Nazis and wrote several
articles on the jews and the arian race. In his late years
he changed his mind and became member of the Confessing Church
Group. This study examines his thoughts and believes, his relationship
to teachers and professors during the 1920s and 1930s.
