The good Goering

tomorrow morning (wednesday 27th), 11.00-11.30am, on bbc radio 4
the good goering (presented by gavin esler)

“Hermann Göring was the most prominent Nazi to face prosecution at the Nuremberg Trials. He had been Hitler’s successor and the second most powerful man in the Third Reich. Yet there was another Göring held by the Allies after the war, who in contrast was a complete mystery to his interrogators – Albert Göring, Hermann’s younger brother.
Albert made some extraordinary claims. He said he had always been opposed to his brother’s Nazi Party and, to the utter astonishment of his interrogators, stated he had saved the lives of countless people threatened by the regime, including Jews, sometimes with the help of Hermann himself.
Could it really be that Albert was the “Good Göring” he painted, or was he just another Nazi liar trying to evade judgement at Nuremberg?”
