. . .instead he killed 8 and injured 57 innocent victims, while Hitler and his gang escaped unscathed.

The grand hall of the Burgerbraukeller in Munich was a favored venue for Nazi functions since the failed Beer Hall Putsch of 1923.

From August to November 1939 Elser concealed himself 30-35 nights inside the beer hall to install his 'apparatus' in the pillar behind the speakers rostrum.
