Birth: Nov. 15, 1907
Munich (München), Germany
Death: Jul. 21, 1944
Berlin-Mitte, Germany

Leader of the bomb plot against Adolf Hitler was executed under orders of Generaloberst Friedrich Fromm and buried here with full military honors under his orders. The body was exhumed by the SS the next day. The SS removed his decorations and had the body cremated.

Von Stauffenberg, Claus Philip Schenk was the youngest of three sons of one of the oldest and most distinguished South German families. Stauffenberg grew up in a massive, turreted Renaissance chateau that had been the ancient seat of counts and dukes. Strikingly handsome and with a fine physique, he excelled both academically and in sports. Developing a passion for horses that qualified him for a place on the German Olympics team, he also exhibited an inquisitive and intelligent mind that pursued literature and the arts; he spoke fluent Greek and Latin.
