Goering-Fock, Carin Axelina Hulda
Carin Fock, born 21-10-1888 in Stockholm, Sweden. Her father Commander Baron Carl Fock was a Swedish Army colonel, from a family who had immigrated from Westphalia.
She became Carin von Kantzow upon her marriage in 1910 to an army officer, Baron Nils Gustav von Kantzow, he died age 81, on 25-04-1967. Nils became metally ill of the strang situation of the later divorce and his remaining love for Carin. He ones jumped of of a train after a psychose, survived, but died in misery. They had one child, Thomas von Kantzow, born in 1912, he committed suicide in May 1973, age 61. In 1920 she met Hermann Goering, (see Goering Peter) five years her junior, then working as a commercial pilot in Sweden for Svenska Lufttrafik. They carried on an adulterous relationship until her divorce on 13-12-1922. After their marriage on 03-01-1923, Joseph Goebbels (see Goebbels) (did you know) used the marriage for the Nazi propaganda, the Goerings first lived in a house in the suburbs of Munich, Döbereinerstrass 30 and the most cost were paid by Nils von Kantzow, her ex. She even had a car with driver. They had to flee to Sweden after the failed Beer Hall Putsch of November 1923. (see Andreas Bauriedl) (see Theodor Pfordten) Carin already suffering of angina pectoris, asthma, rheumatism, and intestine problems, followed her husband, a morfine addicted, after being wounded in the groin and hip during the Putz in 1923, into the Nazi Party, and by all accounts was an even more fanatical Nazi and Antisemistic then her husband. She took an active part in the endless talk of Hitler's (see Hitler Paula) inner circle, both in her own home and in regular drinking sessions in the Bratwurstglöckel tavern in the heart of old Munich. With the rise of the Nazi party, Goering (see Herman Goering) (did you know) returned to Germany and achieved political power, though his wife was little able to join in his new role, with her serious ill-health. She suffered also from tuberculosis during her later years. Her mother, Huldine Fock died unexpectedly on 25-09-1931. Carin couldn't join the funeral, because of her bad condition and was shocked and later died of heart failure on 17-10-1931, four days prior to her 43rd birthday. Carin first was buried in Löv, Sweden, but when Goering visited the grave in October 1933 and put a wreath, in the form of a swastica, on the grave, the graveside was destroyed. The gravestone with a swatica engraved was now engraved with the text, " We the Swedish are insult by the desecration of tombs by the German Goering, let his former wife rest in peace and save us for the German propaganda ". Hermann Goering called the baronial hunting lodge he built from 1933 Carinhall, in her honour. It was there that he had her body reinterred from her original grave in Sweden, in a funeral attended by Adolf Hitler (see Alois Hitler) (did you know). Carinhall was demolished under Goering's orders as Russian troops advanced in 1945, Carin was reburied in the woods of the Schorfheide but the Russians discovered the new grave. A local forester could pinch the remains and informed the family in Sweden. The new Communist Order in East Germany pertinent forbidded the removal from her remains to Sweden. With the help of the Swedish Berlin Pastor Heribert Jansson, the remains, under a faked name and faked reports, were cremated in the crematorium of Wilmersdorf, Berlin on 03-02-1951. He took the urn in his backpack and brought the remanis to Sweden with the train.
Carin was re-buried in Sweden, cemetery Drottningholm Lovö, Stockholm, till now. Hermann Goering later married the theatre show girl, Emmy Sonneman (see Sonnemann).
