Stiftung 20. Juli 1944

The Memorial Foundation for July 20, 1944 developed from the “Aid Foundation for July 20, 1944.” This organization was founded in 1949 on the initiative of survivors and bereaved family members of the German resistance and the then German Federal President Theodor Heuß.

Today’s foundation has the main role of preserving the legacy of the resistance by keeping its memory alive. The foundation focuses its work on young people, Bundeswehr soldiers and the international community, organizing exhibitions, symposia, travel activities and memorial events.
