This map shows the influence of religious conviction on the Nazi vote for the Reichstag election 7/32. Elevation represents the share of catholics / protestants (the higher, the more catholics live in a Kreis) in relation to total population. The Nazi vote share is represented by different colour shadings (dark red: highest NSDAP share; light green: lowest NSDAP share). The map reveals that the NSDAP strongholds are clearly restricted to protestant areas. This becomes very clear e.g. in East Prussia, where in a small catholic enclave the NSDAP performed very poorly in comparison to the surrounding Kreise dominated by protestants.
