WOLF’S LAIR

Wolf’s Lair near Ketrzyn – General Headquarters of Adolf Hitler between 1941 and 1944, erected before German invasion of USSR. The assassination attempt of Adolf Hitler took a place in Wolf’s Lair on 20 July 1944.  A bomb was placed by Claus von Stauffenberg. The explosion during the meeting caused only small injuries which did not do any harm to Hitler.
