Hans Meiser is born in Nuremberg. As Bishop of the Bavarian Evangelical-Lutheran Church, he will take significant steps to collaborate with and support the Nazi regime under Adolf Hitler.

In 1938, for example, he imposes a loyalty oath on all Bavarian pastors which states:

"I swear to God the Almighty and Alknowing: I will be loyal and obedient to the Führer of the Reich and Volk, Adolf Hitler, I will obey the laws, and I will conscientiously fulfill all my official duties, so help me God."
