Adolf Bertram is made archbishop of Breslau. Although he will oppose some aspects as the Nazi agenda, as Cardinal and Archbishop of Breslau Bertram will be an important supporter of the idea that Catholics should remain loyal to the Nazi government and to Adolf Hitler.

Adolf Bertram's pro-German leanings will become obvious well before the Nazis seize power. During the 1919-1920 Silesian uprisings, Bertram will work heavily on behalf of Germany. He will, in fact, be derided as a "German chauvinist" by Polish Catholics.

Bertram will permit German priests to participate in pro-German political activities, but forbids Polish priests from participating in Polish cultural or political activities.
