Hermann Goering is certified by doctors as a a dangerous drug addict and placed in restraints in the violent ward of Långbro asylum in Stockholm.

Goering's addiction to morphine began two years earlier when he was operated on in Austria for a groin wound he received during the Beer Hall Putsch.

His first wife, Carin, wrote at the time to her mother that "in spite of being dosed with morphine every day, his pain stays just as bad as ever." This addiction would stay with Goering until his imprisonment in Nuremberg in 1945.

While in the Långbro asylum, Goering is described by a psychiatrist as "very violent and had to be placed in a straitjacket but was not insane." The psychiatrist also writes:

"Like many men capable of great acts of physical courage which verge quite often on desperation, he lacked the finer kind of courage in the conduct of his life which was needed when serious difficulties overcame him."

These reports will be used in a few years by Goering's political opponents because, at this time, all medical reports in Sweden are part of the public record.
