    As a result, work-arounds were employed. Cornwell alleges that the 'quid pro quo' for Hitler's agreeing to grant the Vatican these rights and privileges was Pacelli's collaboration in the withdrawal of Catholics from political and social activity. Lewy points out that Cardinal Bertram was made aware of attacks in different areas in Germany before or after the ratification of the Concordat Lewy, pp. Cornwell recounts that Kaas, chairman of the Center Party and a close associate of Pacelli, was the one who marshalled the votes of the party members to pass the Enabling Act.

    His breakfast was a piece of bread and a glass of warm milk; for the rest of the day he ate not much more than that. Next, Hitler insisted on the "voluntary" disbanding of the Center Party, the last truly parliamentary force in Germany. But even if his prevarications and silences were performed with the best of intentions, he had an obligation in the postwar period to explain those actions. Considered a saint in his lifetime, the pontiff was also an accomplished politician whose approach to the great questions of the day, including his response to the Holocaust, was largely one of diplomatic maneuvering.

    Adolf Hitler knew how to talk to the masses. Religious content became forbidden in newspapers ordinance was introduced on 24 Aprileffectively killing all of the remaining Catholic newspapers in Germany Lewy, p. So it is possible that Hitler just took something already in the works and accelerated it in hopes that would satisfy the Catholics enough to keep them under control. Thus, according to Cornwell, Pius XII facilitated the rise of Hitler first through the negotiation of the Reichskonkordat and subsequently through his passivity, silence and inaction, which ultimately condoned and enabled the Holocaust. Gives a breakdown of the events concerning each respective concordat. These attacks were not centered only on Catholic individuals, but on any organizations that might express an opinion counter to that of the current regime; such organizations included the media, the Center Party, and any quasi-political groups.

The concordat as finally arranged practically ignored them.
