Hi All
After watching a documentary on cable about an American prison guard during the Nuremburg trials who became sympathetic to Goering and bought him things and in the end bought him a jar of skin cream with a capsule of cynanide in it.
Is this a myth? as it cannot be proven. There are photos of Goering and the guard during the trials. The guards Son denies his father fell into Goering's trap. Goering could speak english and was a very manipulative and deceiving person but the guards son refused to belive that his father could have prevented the allies from bringing Goering to Justice.
There is also a story about a Jewish dr who treated the prisoners awaiting trial at Nurembug who also helped Goering.
My question is after viewing the concentration camp films and listening to testimony, how could an american Lt be easily fooled and of all people a Jewish Dr as well into beliving the 2nd highest Nazi in history? it astounded me after watching the documentary

cheers

I sincerely wonder what would his sentence be?
Capital punishment?

Hello,

I saw the same documentary. I believe it to be accurate. When he was imprsioned, Goering's personal posessions, including the jar of skin creame, were taken for him and kept under lock-and-key. His only visitor was his wife, and she had no access to the personal goods. The evidence is circumstancial, but, pretty convincing, that only a guard had both access to the personal goods, and also to the prisoner.
oxymoron

Ditto, only have the same information, but it sounds plausible.

Does anyone happen to remember the name of this documentary? I've been trying to find it, in order to see it again, with no success.
