In Rome, a British Minister has an interview with Cardinal Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, and reports back home that "His Eminence said that the Vatican really viewed with indifference the dissolution of the Centre Party" in Germany.

The Catholic Centre Party of Germany dissolved itself earlier this month as part of the Reichskonkordat — the Concordat between Nazi Germany and the Vatican.

In exchange for an end to Catholic politics in Germany, the Nazi government will guarantee the existence of Catholic education.
