German Church Bells Ring When Troops Enter Warsaw, Celebrating Nazi Victories

On the occasion of German troops entering Warsaw, Hanns Kerrl, Nazi Minister of Ecclesiastical Affairs, instructs all German churches to ring their bells at noon for the next seven days "out of grateful commemoration of the victory and of the dead."

Cardinal Adolf Bertram, Archbishop of Breslau, recommends to the German bishops that they comply, and so the church bells ring in Catholic churches throughout Germany, celebrating the first real military victory of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi war machine.
