Filed under: History, Oppression — cynicalsynapse @ 6:42 am

Today marks 65 years since the most famous attempt to kill Adolf Hitler. The Nazi Führer orchestrated the deaths of millions through murder, genocide, and an aggressive, offensive total war. The bombing at Wolfsschanze came the closest of dozens of assassination attempts, but if failed.

Although there were other conspirators, Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg placed the bomb at Hitler’s East Prussian headquarters. The attempt’s failure resulted in thousands of arrests, essentially crushing any further serious effort to kill the dictator.
