Berlin St Matthäus Kirchfriedhof (#0103)

Berlin St Matthäus Kirchfriedhof (#0103)
Memorial for those who were involved in a July 20, 1944 plot to kill Hitler. The bodies were originally buried here, but were later removed to an unknown place. Per the Wikipedia article (link below), the goals of the conspirators were not as nobel as popularly believed. The conspirators largely supported the goals of the National Socialists, but had lost confidence in Hitler and wanted to bring the war to an earlier end. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_July_plot

Still, an earlier end would have been an improvement--

Had they succeeded, who knows how the war would have ended, and would the Russians have reached Berlin with all that followed......?

It's an interesting question as to what the situation would have been like if they had succeeded -- per the Wikipedia most of the plotters believed that Poland would remain part of Germany and I don't know the status of Austria/Czechoslovakia at that point in time. Paris wasn't liberated until a month after the plot. The results could have been a quite large German empire.
