General Erhard Milch

Written by: George Chittenden : 28 Oct 2019

This WWII photo was taken sometime during 1940 and features General Erhard Milch speaking to German Stuka pilots. Milch was a protégé to Hermann Göring. In 1933, Milch took up a position as State Secretary of the newly formed Reich Ministry of Aviation. During the 1940 Field Marshal Ceremony he was given the title Air Inspector General and had the huge responsibility of being in charge of aircraft production.

Milch survived the war, but was convicted of war crimes during the Milch Trial held before the U.S. military court in Nuremberg in 1947 and was sentenced to life imprisonment at Landsberg Prison. He was convicted on two counts, war crimes and crimes against humanity. His sentence was commuted to fifteen years in 1951, and he was released in June 1954. Surprisingly Milch’s father was Jewish, and the Gestapo investigated him before the war. Hermann Göring produced an affidavit by Milch's mother that his true father was her uncle Karl Brauer, making Milch a product of incest and Milch was issued with a German blood certificate.
