This study evaluates the publications on church history, barely considered up to now, which deal with the Protestant Kirchenkampf (struggle between the German Christians and the Confessing Church) which started during the first years of the Nazi regime. It observes the different ecclesio-political groups and shows that as a rule the German Christians chose a descriptive and triumphalist portrayal of the Kirchenkampf which culminated in Andreas Duhm's Kirchengeschichte des Jahres 1933/34. The representatives of the Confessing Church on the other hand concentrated on the documentation of ecclesiopolitical events and theological confessions, since they were wary of censorship by the state. In this study, the author describes this form of documentation as a feature of the Confessing Church in Germany and deals with descriptions from Switzerland.
