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 anti-Semitism, he did not, it is claimed, go far enough in denouncing Nazi measures taken against Jews.
