THE TRUE STORY: TO STOP THE ATROCITIES OF THE WAR,
A GROUP OF HIGH-RANKING OFFICERS PLAN TO ASSASSINATE HITLER…
THE PLAN TO KILL HITLER
Based On The Incredible True Story Of Lieutenant Stauffenberg’s Attempt To Assassinate Hitler On July 20, 1944.
It is at an early stage of the war that Stauffenberg becomes aware of the crimes committed by the SS, and he also recognizes that the campaign against Russia is a military disaster. Severely wounded, he returns from the campaign in Africa. While still serving the army on the home front, he becomes the mastermind of a resistance group of high-ranking army officers.
In the morning of July 20, 1944 Lieutenant Claus von Stauffenberg is on a flight to the Führer’s bunker “Wolfsschanze” where he is supposed to give a lecture. But Stauffenberg carries a bomb in his briefcase that is to put an end to the cruel Nazi dictatorship: Hitler is to die. In the conference room of the Führer’s bunker, Stauffenberg puts his briefcase with the bomb under the table before leaving the room. He and his adjutant Haeften escape the Wolfschanze when the bomb explodes.
Upon his return to his Berlin office, Stauffenberg takes control of the organisation of post war life. But the rumour that Hitler is still alive turns to become a terrible truth. More and more officers lose their courage and turn away from Stauffenberg and the other resistance fighters. Armed forces that are faithful to Hitler storm the core of the resistance movement at Berlin Bendlerstraße. Stauffenberg and the other members of his group are arrested. They are accused of high treason and condemned to be executed immediately.
