Description

Front: Black and white photograph of Bishop Konrad Graf von Preysing in glasses wearing ornate bishop's robes, holding a sceptre.

Back: Blank postcard lines.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
The Bishop of Berlin during the Nazi era, then Cardinal von Preysing viewed the Nazis as corrupt and malignant, and openly challenged Nazism's ideological underpinnings. He consistently opposed the Nazi treatment of Jews--the only Catholic prelate who did so, and denounced the collaborative behavior of other German bishops.
