In Nuremberg, Pastor Bertram denounces a Jew to the Gestapo and accuses him of having written a poem critical of the Nazi regime. This leads to his imprisonment after the war, but in 1948, he will be feed by the Allies because he felt required to do denounce Jews on account of directives from church leaders.

In effect, he was only following orders - an argument which didn't work for Nazi soldiers and political leaders, but it apparently works for Bertram because his orders were issued with the imprimatur of God.
