Otto-Ernst Remer played a major part in the suppression of the uprising by the conspirators to assassinate Hitler and take over the German government. Remer was a key member in command of reserve troops in Berlin. He was instructed by the conspirators that he should arrest key government people starting with Dr. Josef Goebbels. When he showed up to arrest Goebbels, he was told that Hitler was not dead. Goebbels placed a telephone call to Hitler's headquarters in Rastenburg and Hitler convinced Remer that he was alive. From then on he assisted in arresting all of the conspirators in Berlin and had Stauffenburg and several others shot in the courtyard of the Army headquarters in the Bendlerstrasse.
