Alojzije Viktor Stepinac, archbishop of Zagreb, meets with fascist Ante Pavelic, leader of the Catholic Ustashe movement in Croatia.

Stepinac records in his diary that Pavelic promises him he will

"not show tolerance toward the Orthodox Serbian Church because, as he saw things, it was not a Church but a political organization."

Stepinac concludes that Pavelic is "a sincere Catholic."
