Archbishop Michael von Faulhaber is made cardinal. Faulhaber will become a significant force behind the German Catholic Church's support for Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Michael von Faulhaber will never be a Nazi himself, but he will nevertheless be an ardent nationalist who promotes peaceful cooperation with what he sees as the lawful government in Germany.

Faulhaber sometimes criticizes the Nazis, but only when it comes to policies which directly affect Catholics; even then, he avoids going public with his thoughts.
