Amidst the giddy chaos of Berlin, Hitler toys with death in his bunker. The golden boy of Nazism, Hermann GÃ¶ring, looks set to succeed as FÃ¼hrer. But his bid for power ends with a cyanide capsule in a gaol cell in Nuremberg. And there history signs off on Hermann. Yet buried in the footnotes sits the extraordinary story of Hermann GÃ¶ring's little brother, Albert.
A defiant anti-Nazi, Albert GÃ¶ring spent the war years busting the persecuted out of concentration camps, smuggling them across borders and funnelling aid to refugees throughout Europe. He did everything to undermine his brother's regime. But by 1944 the Gestapo were hunting him down like a dog. Did Hermann step in and save his brother?
Albert GÃ¼nther GÃ¶ring
(9 March 1895 - 20 December 1966)
was a German businessman, notable for helping Jews and dissidents survive in Germany in World War II. His older brother, Hermann GÃ¶ring, was the head of the German Luftwaffe, and a leading member of the Nazi Party.
