Bozone... I like it. About as good as my DUmium.
If he had been truly courageous, he would have taken Hitler down personally, instead of leaving that bomb and walking out.
Did you see how badly he slaughtered Francais in his post to me?
I told him that French was badly mispronounced provincial Latin, but he didn't believe me.
No, these were people who convinced themselves to the very end that it was all a mistake that would be corrected in time. At least Claus von Stauffenberg attempted to correct it. He wasn't just a lamb, led to the slaughter.
I found this online:
"It is etimated that 4,980 Germans were executed after the July Plot. Hitler decided that the leaders should have a slow death. They were hung with piano wire from meat-hooks. Their executions were filmed and later shown to senior members of both the NSDAP and the armed forces."
"In subsequent days, Hitler's police rounded up the remaining conspirators, many of whom were tortured by the Gestapo to reveal their confederates and hauled before the Volksgericht (People's Court) to be excoriated by the dreaded Nazi judge Roland Freisler. About 180 to 200 plotters were shot or hanged or, in some cases, viciously strangled with piano wire or hung up on great meat hooks. "
I suspect that historically, the most heinous crimes perpetrated against Western or Central European civilians, were carried out either by Hitler's secret police, gestapo, Waffen SS, or other units within the Nazi party or military infrastructure, or on the opposite side of the spectrum, by the Stasi.
I hate to admit this, but the bravest resisters/dissenters during The Second World War-aside from the courageous Roman Catholics and Protestants who spoke out against and vehemently opposed the Holocaust-were the partisans.
The internal opposition in most of Nazi-occupied Europe, consisted almost entirely-with the exception, as I've already mentioned, of the devout-of communists.
That being said, it was the extreme fecklessness of the German Communist Party that led to Hitler's acquisition of power in the first place.
Check this out from DU.
