The descendants of Nazi leaders have spoken on camera, for the first time, about the revulsion they have for their ancestors.

They include Bettina Goering, great niece of Adolf Hitler’s second in command Hermann Goering, who says she has had herself sterilised so she would ‘not pass on the blood of a monster’.

Adolf Eichmann’s son Ricardo says he simply cannot find a way to explain why his father became the chief architect of the Holocaust.

While Hitler himself had no offspring, many others at the heart of the Reich had families and some of the children can remember being patted on the head by the Fuhrer.

One is Hitler’s godson Niklas Frank, whose father Hans was Nazi governor of occupied Poland responsible for the death camps in which six million Jewish people were killed.

He says in the documentary Hitler’s Children, by Israeli director Chanoch Zeevi, that he ‘despises’ his father’s past and describes him as ‘a slime-hole of a Hitler fanatic’.
