Theodor Innitzer is ordained a Catholic priest. As Archbishop of Vienna, Innitzer will welcome the Nazi takeover of Austria and sends a number of directives to Catholic clergy and laity in Austria in support of the Nazis.

One of the directives Innitzer sends out says:

"Those who are entrusted with souls and the faithful will unconditionally support the great German state and the Führer, because the historical struggle against the criminal illusion of Bolshevism and for the security of German life, for work and bread, for the power and honor of the Reich and for the unity of the German nation, is obviously accomplished by the blessing of Providence."
