Augsburg Priest Transferred for Refusing to Give Heil Hitler Greeting & Salute

Hitler Salute

A priest in the archdiocese of Augsburg is transferred to another parish because he invariably refuses to give the "Heil Hitler" greeting and salute, and moreover didn't go to the polls on April 10 to vote for Hitler and approve of the incorporation of Austria into Germany.

The diocese administration describes his behavior as communicating a "lack of understanding for the total situation." It is basically the policy of the Catholic church for all priests to go along with Nazi policies as much as possible and not resist, not even against the totalitarian requirements.
