(CU) - Hitlers secretary, Martin Bormann, held a strongly personal dislike for Hermann Göring. And on April 23, 1945, he saw a window to convince Hitler a telegram sent by Goring, suggesting Göring's take over Germanys leadership, exposed the longtime deputy as a traitor. Hitler immediately authorized Görings arrest by the SS as being treasonous. Shortly afterwards, Göring then sent a letter with an aide to Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower, seeking a personal meeting. A nearby U.S. Army officer, Brigadier-General Robert Stack, received the couriers letter regarding an intent to surrender. The arrangements were made, and a meeting was established. After a prolonged standoff, General Stack directed Göring to get into the allied commander's vehicle. Twelve years, Ive had a good run for my money. Göring responded.
Göring found his imprisonment at the infamous Nuremberg trial frustrating. He took pleasure in taunting guards and creating tension in the general area. At the same time, he also became friendly with other guards by signing autographs and exchanging common childhood or wartime stories. Göring was known to be a manipulative character capable of building influence over younger soldiers assigned to guard his cell or transfers. It was clear to the more senior offices; he was playing chess on a daily basis. He continued his game up until his final day, after being found guilty and sentenced to death, and his unexpected suicide by cyanide.
How did he obtain the cyanide capsule that ended his life?

“How did he obtain the cyanide capsule that ended his life?”
Berlin Walgreen’s ?
He died on the eve of his scheduled execution. So he met Beelzebub twelve hours earlier than scheduled. The same end was accomplished — the monster was dispatched.
He changed his name to Pelosi and is living in DC.
Heh, heh. You’re right! That’s more plausible than suicide.
The OSS theory is by far the weakest.
Göring was supposedly a major drug-addict. He was improned by the allies for quite a while during the trial.
I’ve never heard that he suffered withdrawal symptoms.
OR that there were Allied doctors supplying him with his ‘fix’ to keep him able to be properly in his War Crimes Trial...
Somewhere I read that it was thought that a sympathetic guard smuggled him the cyanide. Who knows? He still died in prison, the criminal.
He “woke up” after death and heard the devil say, “I’ve been expecting you.”
I’ve read that he prepared for such an eventuality by having it secreted inside of a dental crown.
I read navel.
He woke up and heard the devil say, “I’ve been admiring you.”
Is he the one who had an American nephew who flew bombing raids on Germany during WWII?
I read about 50 years back the poison was behind a jewel in his wedding ring. Lord only knows...
A colleague, who had Croatian immigrant parents, asserted the Allies should have strung up his body on the scaffold anyway.
Goëring was a genuine WW1 war hero and more of a bon vivant live large kind of guy rather than a Himmler type. Pelosi lacks his compassion.
Goering turned himself in, foolishly thinking the Allies would use him to help run Germany post-war.
I still want to know why Speer wasn’t hanged.
Somewhat disagree. Goring asked for firing squad. He was denied. For an officer, a hanging is a disgrace while firing squad noble. He was given hanging, the most appropriate means of death.
This was also true of Major Andre back in the day. He asked for firing squad, and was denied by Washington. In that case, there was no cyanide.
He was addicted to morphine for years, but went off it during his imprisonment. During the trial he was argumentative and alert and had lost a great deal of weight. Probably the best he’d felt since the 1920s, just before (sort of) cheating the hangman. They strung up his corpse anyway.
