Adolf Wagner, Gauleiter of München-Oberbayern and Minister of the Interior and of cultural affairs of Bavaria, orders that crucifixes be removed from all Bavarian classrooms.

Bavaria is heavily Catholic and this causes outrage in the Catholic Church. Even Adolf Hitler is incensed, and Wagner will be forced to rescind his order in September.
