Letter: Astrology in the plot against Hitler

The Independent Online
Sir: Thank you for publishing my article today marking the 50th anniversary of the Stauffenberg bomb plot against Hitler. I am sure that no one who reads the article itself will infer that I hold any brief for Nazis. Some member of the Resistance had been or were party members; they either left the party or remained to fight the regime from within. The vast majority of the Resistance was never members of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

I therefore find the title you chose for my article - 'Nazi heroes we should honour' - somewhat misleading, and beg the courtesy of your Letters column to dissociate myself from it.

Yours faithfully,
