Ludwig Müller, Adolf Hitler's personal choice for Reich Bishop, loses the election to Friedrich von Bodelschwingh.

Müller is only supported by the German Christian wing of the Protestant Church; Bodelschwing's endorsement of church autonomy gains him the support of all other factions.

An uproar among German Christians loyal to Hitler forces Bodelschwing to resign and new elections are called. The problem is not that Bodelschwing is anti-Nazi, but simply that he believes in the existence of independent church institutions in Nazi Germany.
