It is really not right to describe the Kreisau Circle as a “resistance group”, given that the circle did not actually engage in any resistance. The circle was an anti-Nazi talking shop who spent time discussing what the sort of government Germany would have after the war. Some of the people involved in the circle had contacts with those involved with plot that led to the putsch attempt of July 20, 1944, but the circle itself was not part of the July 20 plot. Would anybody object if I were to retitle the Kreisau circle as an opposition group, which I think more accurately describes what the circle actually was. --A.S.

Ironically, Helmuth v Moltke is often implicated in the 20 July coup yet makes clear time and again in the letters to his wife Freya (Letters to Freya) that he has no part in this coup. Even "judge" Freisling couldnt find evidence of this. vMoltke stated that his motivation to avoid this (or any of the other) coup was there existed no viable alternative political entity, even after Hitler's death, to fundamentally change the course of Germany.Istvan 22:28, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes, Resistance, because they helped the enemy: "The circle worked to inform the Allied forces, especially the United Kingdom, in regard to conditions within the Third Reich and the dangers and weaknesses of Nazism." (talk) 16:16, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
