Hermann Wilhelm Göring ; , foi um militar alemão, político e líder do Partido Nacional Socialista dos Trabalhadores Alemães . Veterano da Primeira Guerra Mundial, em que participou como piloto de aeronaves, atingindo o estatuto de Ás da aviação, recebeu a cobiçada condecoração Pour le Mérite. Foi o último comandante da unidade Jagdgeschwader 1, anteriormente comandada por Manfred von Richthofen, "o Barão Vermelho".

Membro do Partido Nazi, NSDAP, desde os primeiros dias, Göring ficou ferido, em 1923, durante o golpe falhado que ficou conhecido como Putsch de Munique. Devido aos seus ferimentos, ficou permanentemente dependente de morfina. Em 1933, fundou a Gestapo. Göring foi nomeado para comandante-chefe da Luftwaffe, a força aérea alemã, em 1935, uma posição que manteve até ao final da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Em 1940, Göring encontrava-se no auge do seu poder e influência; como ministro encarregado pelo Plano de Quatro Anos, ele era responsável por uma grande parte do funcionamento da economia alemã na preparação para a Segunda Guerra Mundial. Adolf Hitler promoveu-o ao posto de Reichsmarschall, o mais elevado em relação aos outros comandantes da Wehrmacht e, em 1941, Hitler nomeou-o como seu sucessor e assessor em todos os gabinetes.

A posição de Göring perante Hitler ficou substancialmente enfraquecida a partir de 1942, devido à incapacidade da Luftwaffe de cumprir com os seus Objectivos, e de o desempenho alemão na guerra ter decaído em ambas as frentes. Göring retirou-se, quase por completo, da cena política e militar e concentrou-se na compra de propriedades e de arte, grande parte das quais retiradas às vítimas judaicas do Holocausto. Informado a 22 de Abril de 1945 que Hitler tencionava cometer suicídio, Göring enviou um telegrama a Hitler solicitando assumir o controlo do Reich. Hitler decidiu, então, retirar Göring de todas suas funções, expulsá-lo do partido e ordenar a sua prisão. Depois da Guerra, Göring foi culpado de crimes de guerra e crimes contra a humanidade nos Julgamentos de Nuremberga. Foi condenado à morte por enforcamento, mas cometeu suicídio ingerindo cianeto na noite anterior à sua execução.

Citações Hermann Göring

„The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. What do you make of that? There is nothing the British do not have. They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops.“

— Hermann Göring
Context: In 1940 I could at least fly as far as Glasgow in most of my aircraft, but not now! It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy. The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. What do you make of that? There is nothing the British do not have. They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops. After the war is over I'm going to buy a British radio set – then at least I'll own something that has always worked. This statement was attributed to Goering in at least one book on World War II, but it was removed from the English Wikipedia page on him on grounds that it was not actually verified that Goering had ever said it.

„Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood.“

— Hermann Göring
Context: p> Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.</p [http://www.snopes.com/quotes/goering.asp In an interview with Gilbert in Göring's jail cell during the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials (18 April 1946)]

„Ah, the Jews, the Jews, they'll be the death of me yet!“

— Hermann Göring
Context: Now you see. You are even turning the Fuehrer against me. Ah, the Jews, the Jews, they'll be the death of me yet! Exclamation made by Göring in November 1938, soon after Kristallnacht. He returned from a day of dealing with the aftermath of the vandalism and looting to find his wife Emmy asking him to help Jewish friends of hers yet again, and the following day, received a note from Hitler, indicating this assistance must stop. As quoted in The Reich Marshal: A Biography of Hermann Goering (1974) by Leonard Mosley, p. 229.

„No enemy bomber can reach the Ruhr. If one reaches the Ruhr, my name is not Göring. You may call me Meyer.“

— Hermann Göring
Addressing the Luftwaffe (September 1939) as quoted in August 1939: The Last Days of Peace (1979) by Nicholas Fleming, p. 171; "Meyer" (or "Meier") is a common name in Germany. This statement would come back to haunt him as Allied bombers devastated Germany; many ordinary Germans, especially in Berlin, took to calling him "Meier", and air raid sirens "Meier's Trumpets". It is said that he once himself introduced himself as "Meier" when taking refuge in an air-raid shelter in Berlin.

„The Russians are primitive folk. Besides, Bolshevism is something that stifles individualism and which is against my inner nature. Bolshevism is worse than National Socialism — in fact, it can't be compared to it. Bolshevism is against private property, and I am all in favor of private property. Bolshevism is barbaric and crude, and I am fully convinced that that atrocities committed by the Nazis, which incidentally I knew nothing about, were not nearly as great or as cruel as those committed by the Communists. I hate the Communists bitterly because I hate the system. The delusion that all men are equal is ridiculous. I feel that I am superior to most Russians, not only because I am a German but because my cultural and family background are superior. How ironic it is that crude Russian peasants who wear the uniforms of generals now sit in judgment on me. No matter how educated a Russian might be, he is still a barbaric Asiatic. Secondly, the Russian generals and the Russian government planned a war against Germany because we represented a threat to them ideologically. In the German state, I was the chief opponent of Communism. I admit freely and proudly that it was I who created the first concentration camps in order to put Communists in them. Did I ever tell you that funny story about how I sent to Spain a ship containing mainly bricks and stones, under which I put a single layer of ammunition which had been ordered by the Red government in Spain? The purpose of that ship was to supply the waning Red government with munitions. That was a good practical joke and I am proud of it because I wanted with all my heart to see Russian Communism in Spain defeated finally.“

„When I hear the word culture, I reach for my Browning!“

— Hermann Göring
Variant: "When I hear the word culture, I reach for my revolver." Often attributed to Göring, who might have used such lines, these statements are derived from those in the play Schlageter by Hanns Johst: "Wenn ich Kultur höre … entsichere ich meinen Browning!" [Whenever I hear of culture... I release the safety-catch of my Browning!] (Act 1, Scene 1) The play was first performed in April 1933 for Hitler's birthday. Reported as a misattribution in Paul F. Boller, Jr., and John George, They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, & Misleading Attributions (1989), p. 36. "When I hear the word culture, I reach for my revolver" was also is used in the 1981 Cannes Film Festival Award winner Mephisto spoken by a character known as "The General" in the English dubbed version.

„Shoot first and inquire afterwards, and if you make mistakes, I will protect you.“

— Hermann Göring
Instruction to the Prussian police (1933); as quoted in The House that Hitler Built (1937) by Stephen Henry Roberts. p. 63
