We know well the plans of the Third Reich to cleanse Germany and the world of Jews and other "undesirable" ethnic groups in order to create the master race, aided and implemented by the designated successor of Hitler the evil Hermann Goering the No. 2 in the Hierarchy.

But - there is buried almost as a footnote the story of Albert Goering, the Reich's marshall's little brother a vehement anti Nazi who used his name busting the persecuted out of concentration camps, smuggling them across borders and funneling aid to refugees throughout Europe.  Albert Goering did everything to undermine his brother's regime.

Hear what happened to Albert in Walter Bingham's interview with the man who researched and documented this fascinating story. This is one not to be missed.

Walter Bingham was born in Germany. Just days before the outbreak of WWII, with the help of a Zionist youth movement he was selected for a place on the ‘Kindertransport’ to Great Britain. Walter saw front line action during the Normandy invasion of Europe and was awarded the Military Medal for ‘Bravery in the Field’. In England Walter also acted in films including several Harry Potter films. On the day of his Aliyah in August 2004 he transferred his programme ‘Walter’s World’ to Israel National Radio as a weekly Magazine programme and it has been running here regularly ever since. Walter is an accomplished public speaker and was a member of a visiting panel of lecturers at schools throughout the UK, where he spoke on events in the Third Reich. He has also spoken at schools in the USA and addressed audiences in Israel.
