Adolf Hitler appoints Alfred Rosenberg as Nazi Germany's chief philosopher. Many see this as an indication that Hitler is officially endorsing anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, and pro-pagan views because these are the ideas generally espoused by Rosenberg. Rosenberg's book Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts (Myth of the 20th Century) is the most influential Nazi text after Hitler's Mein Kampf.

Rosenberg's book is an argument for a racial theory of culture, according to which the Aryan race has produced nothing but good while the Jewish race has produced nothing good. A number of important Christian leaders will complain to Hitler about Rosenberg an the views he espouses, but Hitler will insist that he values Rosenberg for other reasons and doesn't really agree with his anti-Christian, pro-pagan ideas.
