The brave and principled gentleman in this photograph is Claus von Stauffenberg who was behind the 1944 plot to kill Hitler. He was executed and deemed a traitor until later years when Germans build a memorial to him and the others behind the attempt to save the destruction of Germany from Hitler. They KNEW if their plan failed they would be executed.  His brother, Berthold, was sentenced for treason, and strangled and revived many times to satisfy Hitler's need for vengeance.
