After the war he had to endure a nine-month lasting Sovjet internment. Only after countless statements of other actors he was released in April 1946. Only one month later he impersonated his first post-war role at the Deutsches Theater Berlin and returned successfully to the scene of his former successes. His marriage with Marianne Hoppe was divorced in the same year. See more »
