  • In the end only 50 pastors were put in prison for opposing as the Roman Catholic Church was the largest non-Nazi organisation left in Germany.
  • Hitler faced opposition from army generals who disliked the influence that Nazi organisations, such as, the Gestapo and the ** had in military matters.
  • Many people objected to being forced to join the Hitler Youth and the League of German Maidens, especially after it became compulsory
