20. Juli 1944

Die Gesichter einer Verschwörung

Das Attentat vom 20. Juli 1944 und das „Unternehmen Walküre“ waren der Versuch, Deutschland von nationalsozialistischer Herrschaft zu befreien.

Im Sommer 1944 war die militärische Lage des Deutschen Reiches, Adolf Hitlers immer wieder vorgebrachten Durchhalteparolen zum Trotz, ausweglos geworden. Auf allen Seiten brachen die Verteidigungslinien in sich zusammen: Im Osten rückte die sowjetrussische Rote Armee immer weiter vor, im Süden hatten es die Westmächte dank überlegener Technik schon bis Mittelitalien geschafft.
