The wartime memories of Herbert Heinemann

In the pages that follow, Herbeit's words are as written by him in English. Some minor changes in the placement of punctuation have been made in order to aid readability. Words enclosed by [square brackets] have been added by the Hullwebs editor for the same reason. The story remains otherwise unchanged.


Herbert Heinemann's Luftwaffe ID Card Photograph
I was called up
to join the army (Luftwaffe) at the end of the war 16 years of age. Between the 5th and 10th of April 1945, I was taken prisoner by Canadian troops north of Arubem, in Holland, a little town called ZUTPHEN-VARNSVELD. We were surrounded [with] nothing to eat for days and physically at the end. I personally was happy war was finished for me.

In the following [pages] I let you know the PoW camps that I was in;
