Rommel was never a member of the Nazi party and it was never proven that he did conspire against Hitler

Agree. What nonsense is this.

I agree Rommel was never proven to conspire against Hitler. Did he disagree with the continuation of the war? Yes. Known for going against orders? Yes. This does not prove that he was part of these discussions, rather that he was changed for conspiring against Hitler, hence his decision to bite on cyanide.

Just change it to allegedly.

Could you put Minister of Munitions for Speer because that is what he is more famous than being an architect.

Is he really more famous for that? I know him mainly for being the architect of Hitler's "World Capital Germania" and of course for his Spandau Diaries and his attempt to construct the "Speer myth" of himself as not being a "real" nazi.

Fun fact: When talking about the German architect Albert Speer who designed entire cities for a totalitarian regime and major power, there are two of those: Speer's son, whose name is also Albert, developed planned cities for China in the 2000s.

Goebbels was much more than a propaganda minister. Add more.

Stauffenberg never was a nazi. He first sympathized with them because he was a truly nationalist but then offered active resistance against the dictatorship. He shouldn`t be an answer in this quiz at all...

I agree. He was neither a member of the nazi party nor was he a nazi in mind. Being a right-wing conservative, he supported some of their ideas, but that alone does not make him a nazi. Historic figures are rarely ever just "black" or "white". The sentiment of Stauffenberg and many of the other conspirators is reflected by the statement of one of them, colonel-general Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord, who said about Hitler in 1932: "If he becomes the ruler of Germany legally, that's fine with me, but otherwise, I'm going to have him shot."
