Propaganda Ministry Forbids Religious Press Referring to Nazi Heroes

Horst Wessel, 1929
Source: Deutsches Bundesarchiv

The Nazi Ministry of Propaganda forbids "confessional press" from mentioning Horst Wessel or Leo Schlageter.

Both are treated by the Nazis as heroes, and they don't like how Catholics use the two of them, as Catholics, to promote Catholic integration with Nazism.

This is not to say that the Nazi Party doesn't want to integrate the Catholic Church into the NSDAP, but they want to do so on their own terms — probably in the context of a national, Aryan Christian church.
