    Generalfeldmarschall / Field-marshal Erwin Rommel 1891-1944 (the Desert Fox) is regarded as a humane officer as he and his Afrikakorps were never accused of any war crimes. He was one of those NAZI Germany's solders that can be considered to be a good person. In early 1944 he stood up against Hitler to try to end the war and also he was believed to be indirectly involved in the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler. He paid for his opposition to Hitler with his life! He was taken from his home October 14th, 1944 in Herrlingen and was killed. The NAZIs claimed that he committed suicide but, he was murdered by top NAZI officers because he was very highly revered by the German people. He is buried in Blaustein/Herrlingen Cemetery/Friedhof on Kaplaneiweg and the way, from the train station is clearly signed. He was born 15 November 1891 in Heidenheim an der Brenz, god rest his soul!
    The train station at Herrlingen-Blaustein is a 10 minute trip from the Ulm main station and Herrlingen is part of the town of Blaustein. From the station at Herrlingen it is a short walk.
    When in Ulm be sure to visit the beautiful highest church steeple in the world.
