Hermann Goering great-niece tells Hitler documentary she has been sterilised

“The 53-year-old, who now lives in New Mexico, was among many relatives of Nazi leaders to speak about the shame and revulsion at their family past.

“She was interviewed about the Nazi second-in-command for the documentary Hitler’s Children, by Israeli director Chanoch Zeevi, which is due to be completed later this year, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

“She said: ‘I had my tubes tied at the age of 30 because I feared I would create another monster.

“‘I look like him for a start – the eyes, the cheekbone, the profile. I look more like him than his own daughter.’

“‘The hardest part is admitting that I could have liked him. I was so shocked by that….'”

that’s GREAT niece and nephew, not niece and nephew. as ed west in the telegraph said:

“[T]he idea that Bettina Göring should end her line because of what her great-uncle did strikes me as appalling. It is not as if the Görings carry a variation of the gene responsible for making people genocidal maniacs, and they have a 50 per cent chance it will express itself in their children. There is no ‘evil gene’, to quote Dr Hibbert….

“The concept that we are responsible for the sins of our fathers is a horrible idea….

“Someone should tell the Görings, and the Germans generally, that they’re not to blame for what their uncles and grandfathers did.”

exactly.

  1. I would imagine that people even remotely related to the Nazis have been hounded throughout their lives by Jewish groups such as the ADL. Sterilization was probably the only way – other than suicide – that she could get them off her back.

  2. ““Someone should tell the Görings, and the Germans generally, that they’re not to blame for what their uncles and grandfathers did.”

    They shouldn’t need to be told. If they can’t figure that by themselves then screw them.

    We’ll soon be able to clone the original thing, not some diluted descendant anyway. har har har

  3. If you brainwash someone to commit suicide, is that not murder?
    If yes, then;
    If you brainwash a group of people to commit suicide, is that not genocide?

  4. @luke – “Is sociopathy heritable or not?”

    is sociopathy inherited (vs. heritable)? sure, yes. to some degree or another.

    but we’re talking about a great niece here, so — unless the görings are seriously inbred — probability says bettina should share just 12.5% of their genes in common (i think — it’s late). seems unlikely that bettina’s kids, who probability says would share 6.25% of their genes with h. göring, should then behave just like their great-great uncle hermann.

  5. @luke – “Still, I don’t see why she gets a Darwin award.”

    ’cause she took herself out of the gene pool in a stooopid way. (^_^) at least imho.

    “Hounded”? What does that even mean? Prank calls? Jewish kids TPing their houses on Hannukah?
