Baden-Württemberg: Stauffenberg memorial is reopened

Stuttgart (dpa/lsw) - The memorial for the Nazi resistance fighters Berthold and Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg will be reopened in a new style in Stuttgart's Old Castle. It was renovated in a year and a half. On July 20, 1944, Claus Schenk tried to kill the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler with a bomb and thus overthrow the regime. For this reason he was executed along with his brother Berthold and other members of the resistance.

The memorial is designed as a permanent exhibition. Among other things, an honorary saber belonging to Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg, a bronze head and historical photos are on display. The Stauffenberg family had lived in the Old Palace in Stuttgart from 1909 to 1919, as their father was Oberhofmarschall at the court of the King of Württemberg. The exhibition was created by the House of History in Baden-Württemberg. The reopening is next Sunday (November 20th).

"With 'Attentat.Stauffenberg' we want to ensure that visitors can relate to the contents of the exhibition in many ways," said the director of the House of History Baden-Württemberg, Paula Lutum-Lenger, on Thursday in Stuttgart. The new multimedia type of memorial supplements the classic display by searching, researching, discovering and designing yourself. State Science Minister Petra Olschowski (Greens) also hopes that the exhibition will send a message: "The memorial helps us to understand and understand what we can do so that something similar never happens again," she said.
