Albert Goering was nothing like his elder brother, Hermann, who was a top Nazi party member. He despised the Nazi philosophy and the brutality it entailed. He would sometimes go out of his way to help Jews with the work that was forced upon them, such as scrubbing the street, but the SS official in charge would order every activity stopped upon learning of his identity, not willing that Hermann's brother be humiliated in public. On numerous occasions, he would forge his brother's signature on transit papers or send trucks to concentrations camps with labor requests, enabling many Jews and dissidents to escape. After the war, he was questioned at the Nuremberg Tribunal, where his brother was eventually convicted. He was subsequently released when many of those he had rescued testified on his behalf. Upon his return to Germany, he found himself rejected because of his family name. He passed away in 1966 with his heroic deeds still unacknowledged to this very day.
