At the beginning of World War II, when the “territory” of

was expanding, there were such a group of people who either resisted quietly or acted angrily to kill this wounding demon. Today we’ll take a look at those resisters. Leviathan’s note: precise time estimation, rigorous field survey, exquisite production technology, and sage like patience – all these make Georg else’s perfect plan. Unfortunately, this seems to be the best time, place and people’s careful deployment, but there is still an unexpected deviation.

Maria Strobel works at the B ü rgerbrukeller pub in Munich. She couldn’t believe that the Nazi head of state Adolf Hitler and his followers had just been here for more than an hour, including a group of senior Nazi officials, including Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels and Reinhard Heydrich. Hitler delivered a landmark speech here, while Himmler and others listened and drank beer. But in the end, everyone left in a hurry, leaving a large unpaid bill and no tip. The Bavarian waitress was furious and began to clean up the mess. At 9:20 p.m., she had just begun to clean up the pile of beer glasses, and a big explosion occurred just a few feet behind her. A stone pillar was blown to pieces, causing part of the ceiling to collapse and wood and masonry to rumble down like raindrops. Strobel was thrown out of the pub door from the hall by the blast wave of the explosion. Although the explosion was closest to her, she survived unexpectedly. The other eight were not so lucky. Another 63 people were seriously injured and could only help out. As they staggered to safety, the podium where Hitler stood eight minutes ago was torn apart and crushed under six feet of heavy wooden beams and brick rubble.

after the explosion, the badly damaged bergbraukeler tavern. Hitler always said he was a “lucky man”. During his time in power, he has been in contact with more than 40 assassination plots. The most famous one happened in July 1944. Clausvon stauffenbergen managed to place a bomb in the conference room of the wolf’s lair, Hitler’s East Prussian headquarters. In that explosion, the table bracket blocked most of the shock waves for Hitler. The head of state limped out alive, his eardrum was injured and his trousers were torn to pieces.

Klaus von Stauffenberg (left) and Tom Cruise as him. The assassination plan is well-known, and the 2008 film starring Tom Cruise, Valkyrie, was adapted from it. But compared with the bombing of the bergbraukele tavern five years ago, the attack is not so shocking or so heroic. On the one hand, because Stauffenberg’s equipment is more complete and sophisticated, he could have done better with his resources. On the other hand, he and his associates were not staunch anti Nazis. They may despise Hitler as a civilian leader because of his noble background, but the main reason for wanting to kill Hitler is not fear of his barbaric regime, but simply that he is leading Germany to the abyss. Relatively speaking, the Munich explosion occurred on November 8, 1939. At that time, less than three months after the outbreak of World War II, Hitler’s Nazi regime was in full swing, the final order to attack France had not been issued, the Soviet Union was still an ally of Germany, and the United States was still neutral. In addition, the bombing was only the work of an unknown carpenter, who was much more principled than Stauffenberg, and his skill, patience and determination made him more commendable. However, the Munich incident has almost been forgotten. Even in 1998, there was no commemoration of the assassination or the assassin himself in Germany and elsewhere. The man’s name is Georg Elser. Here’s his life.

Georg Elser on commemorative stamps. The German phrase above means “I want to stop the war”. Elsie was born in 1903. Compared with ordinary people, she is slightly lower in height and slightly higher in intelligence. He is not very good at thinking, but his hands are dexterous. He is a carpenter who specializes in furniture. He never reads books and seldom reads newspapers. He is not interested in politics. He joined the red front and voted for the Communist front. The army is made up of a group of high and low ranking Nazi soldiers. But Elsie is not a Marxist, just a typical member of the German working class in the 1930s. Of course he’s not interested in dancing guns. For him, joining the warriors League was just to have a chance to play in his orchestra. In 1939, the only organization he belonged to was the woodworkers’ Union. Despite his plain appearance, elsai was quite concerned about how the Nazis and their policies reduced the living standards of the German people. Hitler’s often boasted “economic miracle” was realized at a huge cost. Increased working hours and few holidays; Trade unions and political parties are dissolved or takenThe work is extremely hard and slow. With the help of a flashlight, elsai needs to chisel a hole neatly in the wooden parapet. The work alone took him three nights. Then he began to work on the post. Because chiseling a stone in an empty tavern would bring a huge echo, Elsie had to wait every few minutes for the tram to pass or the urinal to wash itself before he could drop the hammer. All stone chips and dust must be cleaned to erase the traces of his work. Early the next morning, Elsie had to put the sawn pieces back together and escape through a side door. The carpenter returned to the pub every night and spent 35 nights completing the plan. Once he was almost caught. When the tavern opened, the waiter found him in the house and ran to tell the manager. When questioned, elsai insisted that he was just a customer who came too early. He ordered a cup of coffee, drank it in the garden and left unhindered.
