Pencil sketch ofan anti Nazi by Dr K Prabhakar Rao


Axel Von Dem Bussche was a German army major from Wehrmacht and was associated with nazi resistance.. He planned to assassinate Hitler during inspection of new uniforms. He was associated with Col Claus Von stauffenburg in the plan.   However, the scheme did not materialize for one reason or other. Bussche was more than two metres tall, handsome and blond and was an ideal Aryan model for the new uniforms to be displayed to Hitler.He planned to kill  Hitlerr by carrying a powerful explosive in his trousers with a timer. He wanted to try his plan in Feb 1944, but in Jan 1944 , he was wounded in battle and lost one leg. He was admitted in waffen Hospital and stayed there when the plot by  Claus Stuffenburg failed to kill Hitler on 20 July 1944. Thus  Bussche escaped arrest. His plans of earlier days were not discovered and those who were arrested did not betray him. Thus he survived sure execution and lived long after the war. He was one of the very few survivors of Nazi resistance movement.
