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)

Ewald von Kleist is the last survivor. Please refer to image: img:,_8.30_-_11.00_Uhr-Zwez_002_Kleist_Jung.jpg

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. (talk) 13:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Needs An Early Life Section[edit]

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[edit]

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. 10:12, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

It says in his book that at least four different sources of explosives were provided,so we might never know. (talk) 13:04, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Misplaced paragraph[edit]

The first paragraph "It was the brother of Philip called Georg..." is in the wrong place or should be deleted.

Philipp to shoot Hitler?[edit]

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 (talk) 10:53, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Georg was to shoot first then five other conspirators, including Phillip, were to shoot after Georg. (talk) 13:03, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
