On March 18, 1946, Robert H Jackson, Chief American Prosecutor, cross-examined lead defendant Hermann Goering. He began by noting that “You are perhaps aware that you are the only living man who can expound to us the true purposes of the Nazi party and the inner working of its leadership?” Goering responded: ” I am perfectly aware of that.”
The testimony concerned the methods of the Nazi rise to power, its methods in sustaining power , the Roehm affair, the creation of the SA, SS and other security measures.
