Hermann Göring was the only person to receive the Grosskreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes during the Second World War. In total only five persons received the decoration.


This website is an initiative of STIWOT (Foundation for Information on the Second World War). With this website we intend to make a time document. Decorations are an essential part in recognising deeds and participating in activities, especially in times of war.
