Goebbels made much of the Allies' demand for unconditional surrender in his propaganda, but the German leadership, both Nazi and anti-Nazi, doesn't seem to have taken it seriously. The anti-Nazi plotters went right on plotting in the expectation that they could make peace with the Allies, the western Allies at least, after they deposed or disposed of the Fuhrer. The best-known bomb plots occurred after the unconditional surrender proclamation in January 1943. The July 20 conspirators expected to form a new German government and negotiate satisfactory peace terms. On the other side, Himmler, Goring, and even Donitz thought they could make a deal with the British or Americans even with Germany on the verge of collapse.
