The Forgotten Tale of a German Soldier's Quest to Prevent World War II

Warfare History Network History, Europe In 1938, Ewald von Kleist-Schmenzin undertook a secret prewar mission to Great Britain. At stake: another world war and the lives of millions. Many accounts have been written about the peace mission flight of Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess and his parachute landing in a farm field in Scotland in May 1941 to discuss with the Duke of Hamilton a proposal to end hostilities. Hess was also Reich minister without portfolio and leader of the Nazi Party, among other titles. He piloted his own plane from Augsburg and bailed out over the duke’s estate. In sharp contrast, very little is known about the secret mission to England by Baron Ewald von Kleist-Schmenzin that preceded the one by Hitler’s henchman. At the behest of the head of the Abwehr (German intelligence), Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, this Prussian nobleman met in mid-August 1938 with Lord Lloyd, chairman of the British Council; future prime minister Winston Churchill, a vocal critic of the current British government; and Sir Robert Vansittart, an ardent antiappeaser in the Foreign Office. This clandestine operation was orchestrated by the Abwehr as the German military’s anti-Hitler resistance movement sought British support of the German General Staff’s plan to mount a coup d’état against the Nazi regime as the Czechoslovakian crisis was escalating. Kleist-Schmenzin and Canaris Ewald von Kleist-Schmenzin was born on March 22, 1890, in Pomerania and had all the trappings of a typical Junker, which included owning a vast tract of land beyond the Elbe River. He was a political conservative who was an active participant in the German National People’s Party. He also supported the concept of a return to a monarchy and harbored devout Christian ideals. In the decade of 1923-1933, he was a staunch opponent of Nazism before Hitler assumed dictatorial power. In 1929, he published a manuscript on the dangers of National Socialism, thereby allowing him to take a prominent place in the ranks of the opposition to Hitler. In 1934, his political party was disbanded by Hitler; however, he still had a prominent place among Germany’s industrialists and entrepreneurs. After 1934, all opposition political parties, the Catholic Church, the Wehrmacht, the financial and industrial sector, and the entire apparatus of the government became dominated by Hitler.

5 very unusual portraits of famous writers on Russian streets

1. Sticky Maxim Gorky Portrait of Maxim Gorky made from sticky tapes. Source: Katya Firsova / Project "Place" Alexander Zhunev, an artist from Perm (850 miles east of Moscow), created a unique portrait of Russian writer Maxim Gorky in his native city of Nizhny Novgorod. The artwork was made with help of different colored sticky tape, and the artist calls his project, "pixel-scotch-art." "This style is very similar to cross stitching and it's suitable for the urban environment," Afisha quoted the artist as saying. "The image is easily recognizable when you look from far, but when standing close you can only see a colorful abstraction of little squares." The artwork was made on netting mesh, so Zhunev says the sticky tape is the perfect material – both cheap and the right size. 2. Industrial Sergei Yesenin Graffiti in Perm. Source: Legion Media Zhunev is already famous for another work – a black and white portrait of the great 20th-century Russian poet, Sergei Yesenin, which was painted on an unfinished building in Perm. According to local media, this building was left uncompleted since 1990 and became the city's symbol in 2009 thanks to the image of Yesenin. This spring, however, the building was demolished, but the artist said he’s ready to repeat his artwork. 3. Hollowed Hermann Hesse Portrait of Hermann Hesse in Moscow. Source: Konstantin Chalabov/RIA Novosti This is one of the most eye-catching images in Moscow. Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto (Vhils) made this artwork on the wall of an abandoned building on Savvinskaya Embankment, and it’s visible from far and especially for drivers. The secret behind the image of the German writer is that it’s not a painting. Instead, it was hollowed into the building facade with drill and hammer. 4. Ivan Turgenev and birch trees Graffiti-portrait of Ivan Turgenev on the wall of 37/7 Ostozhenka Street, Moscow. Source: Vitaliy Belousov/RIA Novosti A huge graffiti image on an entire wall appeared this spring on Moscow’s Ostozhenka Street. The image shows Russian writer Ivan Turgenev, author of Fathers and Sons, sitting on a bench surrounded by birch trees. The building next to the artwork is actually a museum dedicated to the writer. 5. Mysterious Mikhail Bulgakov Portrait of Mikhail Bulgakov on the wall of a building in Bolshoi Afanasievsky Pereulok in Moscow. Source: Konstantin Kokoshkin/Global Look Press A dozen cubist graffiti portraits of famous Russian art figures appeared in Moscow in 2014 as part of the Heritage project. The image of the most mysterious Russian writer, author of Master and Margarita, was painted in Bolshoi Afanasyevsky Lane where the action in the novel took place. The black cat on top symbolizes the devilish nature of Bulgakov’s prose, and legend has it that the character, Behemoth the Cat, can be seen in this area, walking on two legs and talking like a man.
