World War II is one of the most interesting time periods in history. It is truly unbelievable how far racism can go. It is one of the many unfortunate destroyers of our world.

Hermann Goring and Adolf Hitler early April 1945. This was their last public appearance together.
The photograph I have show them mingling w/ the troops, and talking to a wounded soldier Goring carried a Smith & Wesson 38 Caliber Double-Action Revolver.
He surrendered with this weapon to American forces on May 9, 1945
He bought this weapon at a Hamburg gun shop
before World War II.

Adolf Hitler (Führer und Reichskanzler; Oberbefehlshaber der Wehrmacht; Oberbefehlshaber des Heeres) and Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring (Oberbefehlshaber der deutschen Luftwaffe) at the demonstration of the newly developed Hetzer tank destroyer at a closed highway near Klessheim Palace (Schloss Klessheim), west of Salzburg (Austria), on the occasion of Adolf Hitler's 55th birthday, 20 April 1944. In the left behind Hitler wearing ledermantel (leather jacket) is General der Flieger Karl-Heinrich Bodenschatz (Chef des Ministeramts im Reichsluftfahrtministerium und gleichzeitig Verbindungsoffizier Görings zu Hitler), while in the far left (face cropped) is Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel (Chef des Oberkommandos der Wehrmacht). Last, the man wearing black hat behind Göring is Dr. Ferdinand Porsche (Austrian-German automotive engineer).
