Hitler Almost Assassinated: German Bomb Explodes in Munich in 1939 – Part 2

Part 1Part 2Part 3

Bust of Georg Elser in Berlin. 16 April 2009.

The bomb was planted by Georg Elser, a dedicated anti-Nazi, to say the least. After a brief manhunt, he was arrested, thrown in a concentration camp and executed shortly before the collapse of the Third Reich. He deserves to be remembered.

It is a sad reality that many anti-Nazi Germans gave their lives resisting the Nazi takeover of Germany yet these men and women are virtually unknown. Numerous attempts were made on Hitler’s life yet he had the luck of the devil and all of the many assassination attempts against him failed.
