When Linda Voss goes to work for General Franze-Otto Dietrich, her voice over says shes now in a house of the elite where names like Goring, Speer and Von Stauffenberg topped the Guest list. Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg was not in Hitlers inner circle and at the time of the film he had already joined the resistance and would have most likely been in North Africa. It was not until after his injuries in late 1943 did he go to work as a staff officer to the headquarters of the Ersatzheer ("Replacement Army" - charged with training soldiers to reinforce first line divisions at the front), located on the Bendlerstrasse. There himself and the conspirators, planned and executed the July 20th assassination attempt on Hitler. See more
