Example text

The social isolation of the resistance, which was true of all its political factions, is another reason why its activities were largely focussed on drafting schemes for a new social and political order. At first glance it would have seemed normal to return to the Weimar constitution, which the Nazis had never formally abolished, though after the death of President Hindenburg in 1934 the last legal link with it had been lost. Nor would it have been surprising if they had pragmatically restricted themselves to the immediate measures necessary to stabilise government after the overthrow of Hitler’s regime.

18 The power to determine what should be classified as resistance in the narrower sense lay basically with the Gestapo which, even after 20 July was relatively broad and arbitrary in defining the circle of those to be pursued, quite apart from the subsequent wave of arrests in the ‘Storm Operation’ of 22 August 1944, which rounded up thousands of potential opponents of the regime, especially figures from the Weimar Republic. While the circle of those in the know, of sympathizers and parttime advisers was remarkably extensive, the group of truly active plotters remained extremely limited and, to a very great degree, politically isolated.

The plotters saw the experience of National Socialism not as a contrast to that of Weimar, but rather as a logical extension of it. The one-party system of the Third Reich seemed to be no more than the multiparty Weimar state taken to its utmost extremes. In the perspective of political history, the reference-point of the plotters was rather the opportunity, missed in 1918–1919, of establishing a comprehensive new order, which they related to the Prussian reforms of 1809 or – with a typical shift of emphasis – to the German uprising against Napoleon in 1813.
