The book, Mission at Nuremberg, was at times a bit frustrating. In reading many books you sometimes get into the mindset that all things are going to be put right somehow. As we saw in last week’s post this is not always the case. But in the midst of heart-wrenching brokenness the book does deliver glimmers of good news. Pockets of sunshine even at the gallows.
After Gerecke’s meeting with Hess he immediately went to the neighboring cell which was occupied by Hermann Goering. They also shook hands. Where Hess had been dismissive of the ministry Gerecke desired to share, Goering seemed eager to hear what he wanted to share. Goering even said that he was glad Gerecke had arrived (p. 143).
