The Vons Against Hitler

Years ago I went to a retreat run by Opus Dei on the Maryland shore at the estate of a Catholic opponent of Hitler. I believe it was a Von Moltke. One of the lesser told tales of Hitler's rise is the great contempt and opposition to him by the Catholic, Aristocratic Right. The "Vons" eventually tried to kill him as this tale relates.

Now Tom Cruise is doing a movie on Von Stauffenberg and the rest. They will probably be scientologists.

Although setting the unfolding of the plot to the Mission: Impossible theme would make for a snappy film.
