Stauffenberg is a 2004 Germano-Austrian TV film by Das Erste (German TV ARD), about Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg and the 20 July 1944 plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler. The film was first broadcast on 25 February 2004 on German TV (ARD).

Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg becomes an enemy of Hitler's policy, because Generalmajor Henning von Tresckow informs him about German war crimes behind the Russian front. On 20 July 1944 he goes with a time bomb in his briefcase to a conference room at Hitler's headquarter Wolfsschanze near Rastenburg in East Prussia. Four people were killed immediately, but Hitler survived.

The film was awarded "best film" at the Deutscher Fernsehpreis (German Television Awards).

The film goes by the international English name of Operation Valkyrie.
