Goering, Goering, Gone…

Saw “Goering’s Last Stand” yesterday – a one man show set the night before Hermann Goering is to be hanged after his Nuremberg trial.

It was fine, nothing particularly wrong with either script or performance or staging. It made me go and read his wikipedia page.

I guess, what I was expecting/hoping for was a recap of the bit where, when challenged on the immorality of Lebensraum, Goering goes (to the effect) “oh yeah, and how was that so very different from what happened to the Australian Aborigines, or the American Indians?”

That, far more than ‘making a Nazi semi-sympathetic,’ would have really discombobulated the audience.
