    I was just thinking today and it is the 66 year anniversary of the failed attempted asassaination plot against Hitler which was on July 20, 1944 at the Wolf's Lair in Eastern Prussia. Imagine if it had succeeded. Oh well. Just thought i'd post this bit of info.

    From this point of view, i will go abit offtopic but, if we go back in time and kill hitler, will it make a paradox? because of chain reaction of many thing. sounds very confusing and interesting...

    You know he has had 42 assassination attempts (apparently) on his life...and survived them all. That's what I call lucky (or super human).

    42 assassination attempts? Damn that's a lot. The only one I herd about was that someone placed a bomb in a suit case and it was moved to the right of the room where two soldiers were sitting next to him and BOOM! Hitler survived.
    Forgive me I'm kind of buzzed :D

    Yep that changes everything! The universe would collapse on its self. Or you just go back to your time only to find out that everything is different & that you don't know anyone!

    It's important, that people know, there were attempts to stop him and just as someone told before, there were a lot of them. Just as those who died in the war opposing the Nazis are heroes, so are they. Most of them died while trying. There was an attempt where a guy was learning to shoot with a pistol in the woods and then tried to shoot Hitler, while he was in a parade. Just took a shoot from the crowd.

    If it had succeeded not much would have changed the course of the war was well set and nearing its end anyway.

    Many lives would and should have been saved. There were still 10 months of hard fighting after the attempt.(Operation Market Garden, Battle of the Bulge, Battle for Berlin) just to name a few of the important ones. I think we should take a few seconds out of today and appreciate what these German officers tried to accomplish. If it was a success, Von Stauffenberg and his group of officers would have overthrown Hitler's government and arrested many high ranking Nazi officials. Thus, changing the course of history but unfortunately it did not turn out that way.

    The name eludes me as to the paradox/proxy if that Hitler was killed, would his successor be more evil and more successful. Could someone name it? I think it may be called The More Of Two Evils Paradox?

    If you killed hitler, perhaps the nazis may have won the war under the command of who ever took his place? you never know, things can always be WORSE.

    Exactly. I keep in mind the Zen mind view of "The world is the way it is because that is exactly how it's supposed to be given all possible paths."

    Probably the most admirable and courageous of the anti-Nazi resistance movement, a group of students from Munich who opposed Hitler and distributed anti-Nazi leaflets throughout their campus and beyond. Hans and Sophie Scholl, leaders of the White Rose movement, were later captured by the Nazis and beheaded:
