Before Hitler came to power the Catholic Church spread anti-Jewish remarks. They spread hate agents Jews saying that they killed Jesus. This is not the act of just one crazy pope but a ton of popes over a long period of time. All the religious lies and hate piled up. Then a large depression came to Germany. Money was worthless, and was used as fire wood. It took millions of dollars just to buy a piece of bread. Then hitter came to power in the madness and well.... you know the rest. I think we can all safely say that if there was no Catholic church there would be no holocaust. Also we know Hitler was a Roman Catholic (not an atheist like most people say) so who know perhaps Hitler would not have even hated Jews if the Catholic church did not exist.
