Franz Justus Rarkowski dies. Rarkowski had been the Catholic bishop for the German army and issued numerous official statements on behalf of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi agenda.

In one pastoral letter, Rarkowski exhorted German soldiers to always do their duty to the Führer and to God:

"Whatever the times demand in efforts, blood, and tears, whatever the Führer and Supreme Command commands you soldiers to do and whatever your country expects from you: behind all this stands God himself with his will and command."

Rarkowksi explains that a true "Christian soldier" is always

"staunchly loyal to his military oath, to his country, his people, and to his Führer, not out of expectation of reward, not out of fear of punishment, but out of holiest conviction of conscience."
