Richard J. Evans: Why did Stauffenberg plant the bomb?

Richard J. Evans: Why did Stauffenberg plant the bomb?

Was it because Hitler was losing the war? Was it to put an end to the mass murder of the Jews. Or was it to save Germany's honour? Whatever his motives for killing Hitler, Stauffenberg was no role model for future generations, says British historian Richard Evans, in an article published in Sign & Sight online. The article was originally published in Süddeutsche Zeitung, 23 January 2009.

Richard J. Evans is Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University.
