        The Nuremberg Trials - Defendant Göring

        World War II ended in Europe on May 7, 1945, the day after Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring surrendered to the Allies in Kitzbuhel, Austria. Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler had committed suicide just days earlier in his Berlin bunker. View this historic footage from the National Archives of Goring being disarmed and questioned by two American intelligence officers on May 9th. He would be the chief defendant at the war crimes trials in Nuremberg later that year. Learn more with this archival footage from American Experience: "The Nuremberg Trials."
