In ceremonies marking the 65th anniversary of the July 20, 1944, coup attempt, Germany on Monday will honor the plotters of an attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Officials are scheduled to lay wreaths at the Bendlerblock building, now the country's Defense Ministry, where Col. Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg and three others top military officers were executed shortly after their failed attempt to kill Hitler with a briefcase bomb. There will also be an hour of commemoration at the Berlin Ploetzensee Memorial Center for the victims of the Nazis.
