Handwritten dedication February 11, 1918 by Ludwig Kuhn, Catholic Division Priest.
Cardinal Faulhaber was a controversial figure who both publicly decried Nazi policies yet recognized the Nazi government as legitimate and compelled loyalty from his clergy to the Nazi regime. While Faulhaber could speak and write against Nazi racism, and even antisemitism, he did not, it is claimed, go far enough in denouncing Nazi measures taken against Jews.
