“Have you ever thought that your uncle's evil has been passed down to you?” asks moderator Giovanni di Lorenzo. Bettina Göring sits in front of him in the “3 after 9” round. She is the niece of National Socialist politician Hermann Göring, Nazi Germany's number two in a sense. “I asked myself that question too. Everyone has the opportunity to be one. Maybe he was born that way,” suspects the niece. When she was a young girl, her father told her that her uncle Hermann “was an air hero in the First World War.” Because her father's father was died, Hermann Göring took great care of the family. On the one hand, he was a “psychopath”, on the other, a “good uncle”. After the end of the Nazi regime, grandmother Ilse “fell from the top down”. She learned to be a tailor to make ends meet.

“It's all a lie, it's all a lie, it all didn't happen.”

Bettina Göring's father eventually took Ilse with him. When the family was watching a documentary about Auschwitz on television, Ilse suddenly screamed: “It's all lies, it's all lies, nothing happened.” Bettina Göring says: “For my grandmother, he was a good uncle. It seems that a psychopath can do terrible things and still be a caregiver.” When he asked the 13-year-old's father about the family situation, the argument escalated. Her father hits her with a ring and the girl leaves the house bleeding. Since then he lives in shared apartments, becomes a communist and a hippie, joins Bhagwan's sect and moves to Poona, India to live with his guru. When he realizes that this environment too is totalitarian, he turns his back on Bhagwan. Looking at his great uncle, he says, “Now is the time to unite so that something like this never happens again.”

Sibel Kekilli permanent arrangement for parents

There is another moment when you could have heard the proverbial needle hitting the ground. Afterwards, host Giovanni di Lorenzo says: “It was as quiet as a mouse. I know few people who speak like that and are as honest as you.” Actress Sibel Kekilli reported what happened to her and her Turkish parents. “I was isolated from education. “My parents wanted me to earn money quickly,” says the top 10th grade student at the time. “Even before I received my first salary, a standing order was drawn up for my parents, who got forward half my salary.” The parents had invested in their daughter for 17 years and now it had to be repaid.The parents lived traditionally, Sibel felt “cut off from the modern world” and had no “identity”.

“Threats and insults on the street”

The actress came from Heilbronn to Hollywood. And yet he still feels insecure about his job. He doesn't like red carpets or crowds. “I often have negative experiences with threats and insults on the street.” Standing on stage, he is afraid of being attacked. “The film just plays in your head,” explains Sibel Kekilli. He often drives himself crazy, worries about being able to write his lines and makes it very difficult for himself. Kekilli also says that he was once on vacation in Sicily with former Vice Chancellor Franz Müntefering. “I couldn't cope with the heat, but Franz Müntefering built walls together with the owner, paved the road and read three more books. It was impressive.”

1000 seconds in a cold shower

The former chairman of the SPD party, minister of transport, federal minister of labor and social affairs and vice chancellor is now 84 years old and also belongs to the NDR faction. He laughs a lot and seems in good shape despite his fifth heart operation. “I'm 80 percent fine,” he says. To get healthy, he runs four kilometers every day and takes a cold shower for 1000 seconds. But he also talks about how he lost his memory soon after the operation. “The doctors asked my name, the current day and the chancellor – and I didn't know anything,” explains Müntefering, adding: “I really thought at the time that my wife had operated on me.”

“Merz is not necessary”

When moderator di Lorenzo reminds the ex-politician that Gerhard Schröder's birthday is April 7, he says: “I'm not congratulating him. I'm disappointed in the way he didn't comment on Putin's crime.” He then tells an anecdote about how he once publicly urged drivers aged 65 and over to take driving tests and was approached by Schröder. “Schröder said: are you stupid, do you want to trigger a government crisis?” Regarding Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Müntefering reports that he realized early on that he had “the power to make Chancellor.” Müntefering, who only became president in his old age. 73 of political retirement, currently considers the role of CDU leader Friedrich Merz particularly curious. Scholz, Habeck and Lindner “can't do everything, but Merz is still not needed. It's interesting”.
