Talk:Philipp von Boeselager
|WikiProject Biography||(Rated Start-class)|
It would seem that Ewald-Heinrich von Kleist-Schmenzin is also still alive. I therefore think we cannot say that Philipp von Boeselager is the last survivor. I shall amend that, and make a few other changes (you really must use the umlauts; they are important). Kelisi 00:36, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
- Ewald-Heinrich von Kleist-Schmenzin was still alive on 15 Nov 2007, and seems to have outlived Boeselager, as of May 2008.-- Matthead Discuß 00:41, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

However, Phillip probably did not know him, as he says in his book that even if the assination were to succeed, some high-ranking officers might not reveal themselfs out of fear of the SS. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Needs An Early Life Section
Most wikipedia articles have an "Early Life" section that detail the town of birth, parents and their origin and a some details about childhood and teenage experiences. If anyone has such information this would be helpful.
Dynamite for July 20
Freiherr von Böselager says that he brought English dynamite and fuses (from tests they were doing on the front) to General Hellmuth Stieff for use in the plot. German Wikipedia claims that another person provided the dynamite, but I just heard a talk from Böselager where he repeated this claim. 220.127.116.11 10:12, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
The first paragraph "It was the brother of Philip called Georg..." is in the wrong place or should be deleted.
Philipp to shoot Hitler?
Having read his book, I was under the impression that it was Georg who was to shoot as he had the best shot in the group, being a keen huntsman? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:53, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
