To continue the story of the great general and his plans to overthrow Hitler, I visited the Rommel sites in the village of Herrlingen. It was here where he, his wife Lucie-Maria, and son Manfred lived. Herrlingen is mid-way between Munich and Stuttgart.
If you are searching for the Rommel home, this is a good place to start.
As it is now a private residence, this is all I could see of the family home. It was here that he recovered from the strafing attack in Normandy. By early October 1944 he awaited orders for another command. But, Hitler had connected the dots of conspiracy to Rommel. It was down this lane where the staff car with two generals from Berlin drove to tell Rommel that he could either have a state trial, which would defame his name or commit suicide and spare the lives of his wife and son.
Less than two blocks from his home, this is where General Rommel took the cyanid capsule on October 14, 1944. He was a man of honor.
General Rommel and his wife (d.1971) were buried in the Herrlingen church cemetery.
