As a contemporary of Claus and Berthold Schenk Grafen von Stauffenberg, Richard von Weizsäcker`s main interest lies in the Stauffenberg brothers` journeys through life: »In all the most crucial points, they are characteristic of resistance«. He gives reports of personal encounters and explains the important role played by the friendship of the Stauffenberg brothers with the circles surrounding the poet Stefan George.
