Hermann Goering

Involved in the mass murder of Jews during the Holocaust.

Crime, Conviction, Sentencing

Hermann was certainly not first in command, but he was most responsible for all of the executions of the Jewish people. He knew about all of the German's plans and German affairs as well. Because of all of these crimes caused by Hermann, he was found guilty right away. He was held against all four counts of indictment, (crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the conspiracy to commit crimes alleged in other accounts) Then, before the day of the scheduled hanging of Hermann Goering, Hermann took a cyanide pill that he smuggles into us cell. He did this because he thought as if a hanging is too inappropriate and unnecessary for the kind of guy in such a strong position as he was.

What should be the consequence for such crimes?

The consequence I would choose for Hermann and any other German Nazi who was involved in the execution of Jews is life in prison. I feel every Nazi involved should have this consequence because even if they didn't do any killing, they still knew about it, they still could've done something about; therefore they are technically involved in the elimination of the Jewish race. It is not necessary to do the terrible things the Nazis did to the Jews in return, because two wrongs don't make a right. It doesn't make anyone better to do those kind of things to the human race in general, it is just wrong in my opinion. Therefore, every Nazi involved with the concentration camps, and the killing if the Jews deserve life in prison mainly so they can think of all the terrible things they have done, and just think they can do nothing about it now;the damage has certainly been done.
