Catholic Priest Ludwig Kaas Pushes Catholics in Reichstag to Vote for Hitler's Enabling Act

Monsignor Ludwig Kaas

Ludwig Kaas, a Catholic priest and leader Germany's Catholic Center Party, implores Reichstag delegates of the Center Party to vote in favor of Adolf Hitler's Enabling Act the next day.

Kaas will himself, even two years later, claim that he played a "positive role" in the passage of the Enabling Act. This new law will provide Adolf Hitler with absolute power, ending Germany's democracy and creating a Nazi dictatorship.
