Germany has many different religions. The Constitution guarantees religious freedom in Germany. Since the Reformation which took place in 1517, Germany has been divided into two different religious areas. Protestants are generally in the North. About one-third (33%) are Protestant. In the south and west, Roman Catholics are generally in that area. Another one-third are Roman Catholics. Some Germans have no religion, close to 20 million citizens or about 25%. About 4.3 million are Muslim representing about 5.4%. In Germany, there are Jews, about 500 thousand were sent to concentration camps. Today no Jews are in concentration camps and the population stands at 108,000. There is no state church. Though Christians and Jews have government financial support collected through "church tax". Muslims are trying to seek this official status. If a German doesn't belong to a religion or doesn't attend church they can opt out on this tax by marking it down that they don't belong to a religious organization.
