The allies treated the prisoners very badly and many persons executed were on trumped up charges by NAZIs in the allied detention camps and the alliest _murdered_ many innocent persons. Albert escaped only because some Jews came to his rescue. There are many who were murdered just because they were related to a NAZI. The allies wanted their revenge rather than justice. Goldberg who was nearly put to death and was only saved within hours of execution after they found out that he was the SS (a medic actually) who was the courier for Operation Valkyrie and the bomb courier. No one would believe him so he remained quiet. The alliest really did treat the German prisoners of war very badly, the Germans did treat the Americans a lot better. The Americans did treat the Italians prisoners a lot better that they treated the Germans. The Italians were not all that into the war though.

The only Goering worth admiring and respect. Albert Goering deserves to have a movie and to be really called a hero, a man who refuses to fall into evil the way his brother was. He and Oskar Schindler are among those heroes who resisted the Nazis are worth honoring.

Albert goes a long way to giving you hope for human beings. Maybe not humanity, but individual people. You hear about all the regular white people in German going along with the Nazi regime and you wonder if anyone pushed back at all. And someone did.

How could one brother be so evil and the the other a largely forgotten hero? I don't know, but I think he would have taken all the risks even if he didn't have that name to save him.

Nicoĺas Garćia (1 month ago)
Hitler was a genius who brought the country out of moral depravity and economic decay, making it the single most powerful and productive country on the planet, the innovations of which remain a part of the daily lives of Western man. He employed science in the management of society in a way that no one had ever done before, and no one has attempted since. Furthermore, he was an overwhelmingly powerful personality, which is in itself something to be respected, even if it is not honored.

I do think the editiin and cuts and camerawork, mixing and the presence on screen is best on this type or format. But the desk sitdown does need way less editing i presume.

Albert Göring was an incredible man. It saddens me that he was treated so poorly, yet even that ill treatment didn't keep him from being a kind person. It's stories like this that prove to me that karma isn't real... he deserved so much better.
Eddie Brahhh (1 month ago)
Albert was a great, great man. The Nation Socialists actually thought he was evil. You should always consider those who go against the grain.

Your bonus fact had a wrong date. It’s was 1894 the the month we was in Haiti not 1984. The dates do matter especially if you are giving information about a topic that most people are not aware of.

One dies a misunderstood hero, with one final act of selfless generosity, and the other dies like a pussy in a jail cell. It's a shame the bad brother forever sullied the life of the good brother after everything had been said and done.

Kay (1 month ago)
it’s war, both sides did horrible things, allies included, Bombing of Dresden, yet those are brushed under. Victors of war write the history books. I don’t think it’s really right to try someone as a war criminal, if they refused to fall in like and do as told, they’d get shot, and their families would also.

Why'd she WANT that, I bet every cent is haunted by the ghosts of modern artists and jewish/polish children. How shameless must she be to even ask? I mean, she's not responsible for her father's actions, she didn't have to associate herself with him in such a manner.

About that very last bit... Those historians must have been men that weren't amateur astronomers. Nine months is NOT equal to 295 days—ten lunar months, the average length of human gestation and the answer to why more children are born on the full moon (the reader can probably figure the rest out). (Credit to popularizing that basic fact of human behaviour goes to Neil DeGrasse Tyson.)

John A. (1 month ago)
It is great hearing that there are some people who spend their lives doing what they can to help others in horrible times even at their own personal risk. In a world where we daily see people doing the wrong things for their own gain, or simply out of some hatred toward others, it is nice to know there are a few good people out there that are worth humanity continuing.

It's disgusting how they were faced with evidence of the contrary, yet they called guilty everyone anyway. What a mock-trial. Wouldn't be surprised if they made everything about the holocaust up to begin with.

It's funny how they put the nazis on trial, when nothing they did was actually illegal in Germany at the time.

It's funny how you think made-up papers have any bearing on morality. They were put on trial because they were all traitors and murderers, that's why.
Kay (1 month ago)
seasong It was classed as war crimes, which yeah, also doesn’t make much sense.... it’s war, both sides did horrible things, allies included, Bombing of Dresden, yet those are brushed under. Victors of war wright the history books. I don’t think it’s really right to try someone as a war criminal, if they refused to fall in like and do as told, they’d get shot, and their families would also.

The question left unanswered is, why the hell didn't they grant the man a new identity after his name was cleared and he was set free?
MacX85 (1 month ago)
Maybe he didn't want to. Also, Göring is a reasonably common name in Germany. He could just have said that there was no connection.

Goring obviously suffered from "Fake News" just like one current politician. Fake news, whether in Goring's case, or in the current time is simply the inability to lie fast enough to keep everyone confused about one's intentions or past acts... An "alternative fact" is the scientific name for the individual lie being told. Claims of fake news and alternative facts worked as well for Goring as they're working for some present day politicians. Winning, wasn't that what the Nazis were all about? LOL!

jaeh but what u expect ? children age 15 get put in arms in the german army, and fought in a war, like every soldier did before and after 1000 years and for that they are no criminals. still alot of them ended 10+ years in sibiria dying there when the war was long over ... it wasnt a fair time

I might be mistaken, but last time I checked, 9 months were sufficient to carry out a child. Also, last time I checked it was around 9 months from the mod of a year to March of the next year. Soo ... this thing with Albert Göring and his Godfather kinda adds up. Doesn't mean it's true, but it's rather bold to discard it based on math if the math checks out ...
