    (August 9, 1887-April 9, 1945)
    Son of a Protestant clergyman
    Leader in failed 1938 Abwehr Conspiracy, an assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler
    Hatched plot with Wilhelm Canaris and Wilhelm Heinz to lead a commando assault of Army conspirators against Hitler's chancellery
    Procured explosives for killing of Hitler during a meeting
    Arrested in 1944 after failure of coup
    Executed in Flossenberg Concentration Camp in 1945
    He was dismissed from the army after an affair with a fellow officer's wife.
    He was passionately opposed to Hitler on moral and political grounds.
    He was appalled by Hitler's treatment of the Jews and his brutality towards his own soldiers.
    He was central to the coup, gathering information about Hitler's inner circle for his co-conspirators.
    He tipped off the Allies to Hitler's impending campaign against France, but was not taken seriously until it actually happened.
    He said: 'There are those who will say that I am a traitor, but I truly am not. I consider myself a better German than all those who run after Hitler. My plan and my duty is to free Germany and with it the world, of this pestilence.'
    His life was dedicated to smashing the Nazi regime and exposing their war crimes and genocide.
