Fritz Menshausen, an official the German Foreign Ministry, writes a secret memorandum about the future of relations between the German government and the Vatican and the possibility of a Reichsconcordat.
According to Menshausen:
"The situation has been completely altered by the new composition of the Reichstag and especially by the passage of the Enabling Act. There now exists the possibility to comply fully with the wishes of the Holy See without also involving the Reichstag.
Above all, it is now possible to conclude a Reichsconcordat, the realization of which until now has always failed because of the objection of the Reichstag."
