"Poland contained many Jews, many people of mixed blood... who are only happy when they are dominated."
A real German hero.
But on the bright side he's spit roasting with the rest of those b***ards in hell.R.I.H.(I wonder if any of the coup plotters had a pure motive or were they all Jew-hating scumbags)
Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg
There was a German Admiral who was a real hero. I'm trying to think of his name. Hitler had him executed after the attempted assassination.
Very interesting person, he helped organize the resistance to hitler. Hitler sent him to spain to convince Franco to join the war, and to access how easy it would be to send German troop there if necessary. He spent his time there doing the exact opposite. He convinced Franco to stay out, and lied to Hitler about how hard it would be to send troops to Spain.
He was the head of the military intelligence for the germans. I watched a tv show, where the announcer expressed amazement that the Allieds were so completely able fool the germans. I remember thinking it's easy to fool them when the head of military intelligence passionately wants Hitler defeated.
Like Rommel, he only turned on Hitler when Germany started losing the war.
You'll recall Ronald Reagan took Claus' nephew to the Bitberg cemetary (Jewish war heroes, iirc) and caught crap for it.
German FR posters report Claus is revered there, and not because he was a Jew hater, but because he helped end the shame Germany felt because of Hitler.
bump for later
One wonders how an officer with a name like Stauffenberg had not been placed under a watch in the first place.
Too bad the count didn't succeed.
All Nazi bastards should burn in hell.
If he had been truly courageous, he would have taken Hitler down personally, instead of leaving that bomb and walking out.
I agree that the man's opinions may be objectionable, but his actions were courageous.
Please research your facts: ***This man never joined the Nazi party***!!! This man was a German nationalist, and, yes, to be honest, a racist (as most Europeans were). But, as a traditional German and a Roman Catholic, he was disgusted and morally outraged by the way he saw the Jews and Slavic peoples being treated during Operation Barbarosa, and this was the seed of his opposition to Hitler. He was an anti-Nazi, not a “Nazi”, as you describe him. Your article should be entitled “The GERMAN Who Opposed Hitler.”
