February 2, 1945

CCF09222014_00004Alfred Delp was taken to the execution chamber of Plotzensee Prison and hanged about 3 o-clock in the afternoon of February 2, 1945.  Hitler had ordered that the ashes of those executed for resistance be scattered over sewage.  This is probably what happened to Delp’s earthly remains.

The following day, Roland Freisler, the presiding judge of the People’s Court, was killed in a bomb attack.

The execution chamber in Berlin is now a memorial.
