Adolf Bertram is ordained a priest. Although he will oppose some aspects as the Nazi agenda, as Cardinal and Archbishop of Breslau, Bertram will become 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 be made evident long before the Nazis rise to power. During the Silesian uprisings of Poland against Germany, 1919-1920, Bertram advocates heavily in favor of Germany and is called a "German chauvinist" by Polish Catholics. He allows German priests to participate in pro-German political activities, but bans Polish priests from participating in Polish cultural or political activities.
