Last Stauffenberg plotter dies at age 90
Saturday, May 3, 2008
Philipp Freiherr von Boeselager, the last surviving member of a cabal that on July 20, 1944 attempted to kill Adolf Hitler with a briefcase bomb, has died at the age of 90, according to a statement released Friday by the German Bundeswehr.
He was born near the German city of Bonn and started to publicly show his hate for Hitler in June 1942, after discovering that people were being shot due to their country of origin.
Many of the other people who were involved in the plot were executed.
