Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber of Bavaria asks for the resignation of Dr. Emil Muhler, leader of Catholic Action in Munich, because his anti-Nazi beliefs have upset Nazi leaders.

When the Gestapo searches his quarters they find a lot of socialist literature, and he's placed in "protective custody" for some time. One of the principle concerns for the Nazis is to eliminate all sources authority independent of themselves; here, Cardinal Faulhaber aids them in this by silencing someone who dares to exercise even a modicum of independence.
