The True Story Of The Valkyrie Plot
While the French Resistance and others who fought against the forces of Nazism became justifiably famous for their courage and heroism, perhaps less is known about the men and women who resisted Hitler from within Germany itself. There were many who saw it as a solemn duty to assassinate or overthrow the man who had seized power amid a surge of national price and confidence but whoe gradually took the country on a bloody path to destruction.
The most famous attempt of all to assassinate Hitler came in July 1944. It came to be known as the Valkyrie Plot. A bomb planted in a briefcase and left in a meeting room was supposed to blow the Fuhrer and his henchmen to pieces, but somehow, by a miracle, he escaped death just as he had done on several occasions previously. The plotters paid a terrible price for their failure.
This program tell the true story of the Valkyrie plot and reveals that the plotters were not only driven by their hatred of Hitler but also by a desperate desire to keep the way out of Germany. It is interwoven with the powerful stories of some of the others who would not be crushed by the Nazi jackboot - The White Rose Group, the Red Orchestra - which put the Valkyrie plot into context and historical perspective. The program also paints portraits of Claus Von Stauffenberg, the man behind the plot, and those others involved in the conspiracy.
Killing Hitler features fascinating archive footage and photographs, atmospheric recreations of key events and new footage shot in the main plot locations as they are today. It also features comment, analysis and opinion given by a specially chosen team of German-historians and the thoughts of a former member of the KPD, the German Communist Party.
