On July 20th, 1944, an attempted coup by several German military officers to kill Hitler in his headquarters in East Prussia failed. This lead to the arrest and execution of the ring leaders in the court yard of the army headquarters in Berlin.
As a result of this failed attrempt thousands of people. who were in many cases only remotely connected to the officers, were imprisoned ans executed, many by guillotine or strangulation by hanging from a piano wire over the next months until the end of WW2.
