The German Catholic bishops meeting at the Fulda Bishops' Conference sends a message to Adolf Hitler asking that he make peace with the Catholic Church and set aside past differences so that both Nazis and Catholics can work together to battle communism.

It is the fervent desire of the Catholic bishops that they have a chance to work with the Nazis in cooperate with the government in "fighting the ever-increasing threat of world bolshevism, which shows its sinister hand in Spain, Russia and Mexico."

The German bishops also warn that

"guns are not enough to fight the Bolshevist danger for humanity. ...

A firm creed and viewpoint on life is needed to insure victory and they must be rooted in true religious education."
