Sir David Maxwell-Fyfe, counsel for the British Delegation followed Justice Robert H Jackson in cross examining Hermann Goering. Nearly half of the cross was devoted to the murder of the fifty British flyers who escaped from Stalag Luft III. On the concentration camps, Goering said he was ignorant on what was going on and “in my opinion, not even the Fuehrer knew the extent of what was going on.” Despite reviewing several documents mentioning the disappearance and extermination of the Jews, Goering maintained his ignorance.
