 Wolfsschanze
Die Wolfsschanze war ein militärisches Lagezentrum des Führungsstabes der deutschen Wehrmacht und eines der "Führerhauptquartiere" während des Zweiten Weltkrieges in der Nähe von Rastenburg (heute Kętrzyn) in Ostpreußen, im heutigen Polen.
Den Decknamen gab Hitler selbst der Anlage, angelehnt an das von ihm verwendete Pseudonym "Wolf", das er hauptsächlich in seiner privaten Korrespondenz der 1920er Jahre verwendet hatte.
Die Wolfsschanze war in einen dichten Wald gebaut worden und zusätzlich durch nichtbrennbare Tarnnetze und Flakstellungen gegen Flugzeugangriffen geschützt.

After the war, the German residents who had not fled or been killed were expelled; the town was transferred to Poland, along with the rest of southern East Prussia; Polish settlers were brought in, and the town was renamed Ketrzyn in honor of Wojciech Kętrzyński, a Polish patriot from the area.
Adolf Hitler's wartime military headquarters, the so-called "Wolf's Lair" (German: Wolfsschanze), was located in the forests east of the town.
The ruins of the Wolfsschanze, which was blown up by the retreating Germans in 1945, are an important tourist attraction.

 July 20 Plot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scores of others, including Field Marshal Erwin von Witzleben, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel and Günther von Kluge, may have been involved in the plot, and in any event were forced to commit suicide because of it.
The plan required Stauffenberg to place a time bomb near the seat of Hitler at the Wolfsschanze (Wolf's Lair) headquarters in Rastenburg, East Prussia, and then immediately travel to Berlin to command the troops of the uprising.
A new government had already been formed, with Beck as Head of State (although most of the plotters hoped for a restoration of the German monarchy under the Hohenzollerns at some point in the future), and Goerdeler as Chancellor.

The king who successfully resisted the pressure of Hitler to deport the Jewish population of Bulgaria to the death camps and to send Bulgarian soldiers to the Eastern front, died in Sofia on August 28, 1943, under suspicious circumstances, few days after a meeting with Hitler at the Wolfsschanze (Fuehrer's headquarters).
The late Pavel Grouev, King Boris's Chief of Cabinet, revealed to his son that the king told him of an "unusually stormy meeting during which Hitler insisted that Bulgaria join the war against Russia." A quarrel started when Hitler rejected Boris's arguments that Bulgaria shall remain neutral vis-a-vis Moscow.
If would, however, be dangerous for Bulgarians to dwell too fondly on this theme.
