Personal Quote:

Von Kleist remembered explaining the suicide plot [in which he was to have worn an explosive vest to kill Hitler] to his father, who paused only briefly before telling his 22-year-old son: "Yes, you have to do this."

"Fathers love their sons and mine certainly did, and I had been quite sure he would say no," Von Kleist recalled. "But, as always, I had underestimated him." See more »


The producers of Valkyrie (2008), starring Tom Cruise, asked Kleist to serve as a consultant on the film. Kleist turned them down and is not mentioned in the film by name. See article in The Atlantic Times newspaper under Miscellaneous Links.
