Hitler Tells German People He Survived Another Attempt on His Life

Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg

Timeline of History


Adolf Hitler speaks on the radio to the German people, letting them know that he has survived another attempt on his life and that this miraculous event is evidence that God wants him to continue with his mission.

Hitler says:

"The bomb which was planted by Colonel von Stauffenberg exploded two meters to my right. It seriously injured a number of my colleagues who are very dear to me; one has died. I myself am completely unhurt apart from a few minor skin abrasions, bruises and burns.

I interpret this as confirmation that Providence wishes me to continue my life's mission as I have in the past. Few people can begin to imagine the fate which would have overtaken Germany had the assassination attempt succeeded.

I myself thank Providence and my Creator not for preserving me — my life consists only of worry and work for my People — I thank him only for allowing me to continue to bear this burden of worry, and to carry on my work to the best of my ability.

Once again I take this opportunity, my old comrades in arms, to greet you, joyful that I have once again been spared a fate which, while it held no terror for me personally, would have had terrible consequences for the German People.

I interpret this as a sign from Providence that I must continue my work, and therefore I shall continue it."
