Carin Gring's remains identified by researchers at Uppsala University
Date:1/4/2013

The putative remains of Carin Gring, wife of Nazi leader Herman Gring, were found in 1991 at a site close to where she had been buried. In a recently published article, Maria Allen, professor of forensic genetics at Uppsala University, Sweden, and her associates present evidence supporting that it is Carin Gring's remains that have been identified.

The Swedish Carin Gring was married to the well-known Nazi leader Herman Gring. When she died in 1931 she was buried in Stockholm, but three years later Herman Gring had her remains moved to his residence Karinhall outside Berlin. At the end of the war, Karinhall was destroyed, and thereafter it was unclear what had happened to her remains. In 1951 skeletal parts were found that were thought to come from Carin Gring, and they were cremated and buried in Sweden. Forty years later, in 1991, treasure hunters found a casket with remains that could also be Carin Gring's. They were sent to Sweden and the National Board of Forensic Medicine for identification.

Marie Allen and her colleagues, together with Anna Kjellstrm at the Stockholm University osteoarchaeological research laboratory, have now examined the remains to determine if they can come from Carin Gring. Analyses of the total of 26 bones showed that they are from an adult woman. DNA analyses confirmed that they are from a woman.

The researchers then performed two kinds of genetic analyses. A comparison of so-called mitochondrial DNA evinced identical DNA sequences between the skeleton and Carin Gring's son, indicating a mother-child relationship.

"The variant of mitochondrial DNA we saw in the bones is a relatively common one, occurring in about 10 per cent of all Europeans. Therefore we went on to study nuclear DNA," says Marie Allen.

Analyses of DNA from cell nuclei is difficult if the DNA is degraded, which is often the case in skeletons that have been buried. Nevertheless, the scientists managed to analyse several p
