Introduction
Assassination is an act of murder of a prominent person or a political figure through a surprise attach for a pay or a political related reason. In most cases this is done by a branch of the military that is rebellious or that is truly serving to protect the rights of the citizens or to save the right of the citizens. In Germany there lived the man Adof Hitler, who was a renowned dictator that may have been among the world's cruelest people, died at the age of 56, after shooting himself in the Fuhrerbunker.He was a bad leader and everybody else knew it funny enough, no one of these powerful individuals whom existed then stood against his terrors. Due to these bad doings, Hitler faced extermination or simple segregation from the Jews and the Slavs. This negligence by the possibly responsible individuals undermined the attempts to take his life thereby leaving the main attempts of taking his life to be small unorganized and poorly timed letting him more time to stay in power to continue brutalizing and causing massive deaths to the Germans which left them with pains and agony. Depression was the recognizable effect pf the German’s during the times of Hitler. He ensured that peace was only when you’re in his support. He has also caused discomfort among the Germans, people would always move very time the war broke in Berlin or any other part of Germany. He was so forced being he had his own military that assured him protection most the time. He did that which was considered inhumane as it was depriving human of life and hence was against the known universal human right to life. This is why people were now angered and turned against him.
This, however, happens after he had survived WW1 and misses several assassination attempts; of the many attempts, 42 are documented; however, they could be more due to lack of proper or missing of some documentation at hand. Many Germans voiced out to ensure they’re able to fight for their rights and the only way out was through ensuring that Hitler was successfully murdered. The Germans lived in disparity, the hope for better life was not nearing. In this paper, I will therefore discuss the assassination attempts to deprive Hitler of life. This paper will also illustrate how, where and when they took place. We shall also be to see who were in charge of these assassination plans.
In 1933 the 4th of March, there was an explosion occurred at Potsdam Garnisonskirche. The participants in such a deadly event remains unknown to date. No one has ever managed to establish the names, location and occupation of these people. Hitler had planned earlier to attend to a ceremony in commemoration of opening of the new Reichstag Building and he had also agreed to pass the Act which that was to see the permission of the celebration of the Potsdam Day in the Garrison church on March the 21st. A day prior to the celebrations tunnels had been constructed beneath the church. The tunnels were to be packed with explosives and get detonated while Hitler was in the church.
In 1938 in what was referred to as Maurice Bavaud’s plot, that happened in Munich, this occurs when the student of theology that comes from Swiss who in his opinion saw Hitler as a dangerous threat for Switzerland, humanity, and Catholicism. Maurice buys a pistol and follows the Fuhrer across the country; Germany. on the day that he, Maurice thought was going to be successful in shooting Hitler, Maurice pretends to be a Swiss reporter, purchasing a seat along the parade route in the grandstand as he waited on the opportune moment, the crowd rose, and they flagged the Swastika flags, therefore, blocking Maurice from shooting. Bavaud, at the end of it all, ended out of money to keep chasing Hitler across the country; he later gets arrested, interrogated, and finally sentenced to death in May 1941.
On November 8th 1939, Adolf Hitler survives an assassination attempt. This was during the period of the 16th anniversary of Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch when a bomb explodes after Hitler just finished giving a speech and he was unharmed. Hitler organized an annual anniversary of one of his famous Coup attempt of 1923, Hitler had grabbed power which led to see him arrested and also led to the virtual inhalation of his party the Socialist party which had enlightened the people of the fatherland’s future. During this day Hitler had been addressing the members of the Old Guard party. Present were among the soldiers and the loyal disciples of Hitler and his fascist party since those days it was in its takeoff or interception days. Just after Hitler left the stage, a bomb exploded which killed seven people and left sixty-three others badly wounded.
July 27th, 1940, in Paris, count Fritz -Dietlof von der Schulenberg had a plan on shooting Hitler during a military parade in his honor from the reviewing stand; this, however, does not happen as Hitler sends word that the July 27 parade had been canceled since Hitler had secretly visited the place some days before and visited all the monumental famed city buildings very early morning on the 23rd July from 6 am to 9 am.
In My 1941, Field Marshal Erwin Von Witzleben schedules a special parade to be on the 21st of May, this meeting did not see the light of the day as was canceled abruptly at the last minute. This was due to poor timing and being unorganized. This parade squad was not organized and were neither secretive to accomplish the assassination deal.
The A36-year-old carpenter, who was a German, Georg Elser planned to assassinate Hitler using a homemade bomb, set and placed in a hall; Munich Beer Hall in which Hitler was going to make his annual speech in November 8, 1939. The explosive was carefully hidden in the pillar next to the platform; Georg did this so that he could help to prevent any more bloodshed; (poor timing and being unorganized they were unable to execute the assassination plan as it would be) the attempt, however, fails when Hitler decides to start the speech earlier and end it sooner for him to be time to travel to Berlin for plans on the imminent war with France .there was a time difference of 13 minutes to the time of the explosion that was 21:20 killing eight people, Elser got apprehended and spent six years in a camp then executed by order in the year 1945.
In 1943, Hennington von Tresckow, an officer and a German resistance member, made one of Hitler's aides to receive a parcel unknowingly that had an explosive that had a 30 -minute timer that had been activated by Fabian Von Schlabrendorff just before it was given to the aide, the attempt failed after the plane landed safely, this had been due to the detonator dying to go off .in the same year, a week after the failed mission of Tresckow, Hitler was attending an exhibition that was held in Berlin showcasing the captured Soviet weaponry von Gersdorff who was to guide him sets a ten-minute c on two explosives placed in his pockets, Hitler, however, decided to get through the exhibition fast enough that he only used eight minutes leaving von Gers to doff no option but diffusing the devices before the explosion.
During the uniform viewing event at Wolf's lair, scheduled on the 16th of November 1943, Bussche had planned to put a grenade in his pocket that would bow both him and Hitler at the best time, on the previous night. However, a bombing raid happened to destroy the train that carried the uniforms, therefore, cancelation of the uniform viewing.
Calvary Captain Eberhard von Breitenbach,h on the 11th march 1944 attended Berghof conference of which,he was Hitler's villa. He wanted to stop Hitler because the war was in a position best eradicate caste Germany had a small browning pistol hidden and tried to use it to shoot Hitler; Breitenbach entered the conference room but is approached at the door and denied access by being told that adjutants were not allowed further than the point he was at, hence another failed attempt. Theodore S. (2019)
Colonel Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg was part of the Treckow’s resistance movement and was considered as one of the technical members of the troop in Operation Valkyrie, which was a planned assassination by detonating a bomb that was placed next to Hitler. Stauffenberg, who was a chief of staff to the Commander-in –chief of the army that was to be replaced and so had easy access to Hitler during this time of the meeting. Unfortunately for other reasons he decided to abort the assassination. Anton G. (2016)
The Lt Colonel Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg, on 11th July 1944, attended a conference with a time bomb hidden in his briefcase. When he telephones his colleagues in Berlin that Goering and Himmer were not present, they all insisted on aborting the mission. On July 15, 1944, Stauffenberg went to attend a Fuhrer's briefing and notices the absence of Himmler, therefore aborting another mission.
Of the most assassinations attempts on Hitler's life, 1944 ’20 July Plot ‘ remains the most famous .von Stauffenberg placed under the conference room table a briefcase that contained a bomb and pushed it close to Hitler; inadvertently, the suitcase was made behind the leg of the table, as it exploded the portion shielded Hitler from the major blast, four people were killed and thirteen others injured, this failed mission led to the escape of von Stauffenberg to Berlin, and faced a firing squad and the suicide of Henning vo Tresckow who were the central planners of the plot made.
