    Default German actors war passport???

    Hi all,


    Hope I can clear up some facts, which might make this passport an interesting piece of history.

    I believe the holder was a well-known German actor and that he went to perform for the troops during the war.

    I am puzzled by the additional name that was given to him in passport: Othello Bockermann (?) and I am interested to know better about the journeys he made to: Bulgaria, Greece and Rowno...

    Was it the Luftwaffe who took him to the front (?) and was he performing for the troops?

    Last, was there a ceremony or important leader-visiting-event in Rowno at that time?


    Sorry for all the questions...


    Neil.

    Yes, and it does mention the fact that he is an actor.
    Mainly find it interesting that he might have gone to perform for the troops or participate in official events where leaders where visiting the troops, something like a German "Bob Hope"...

    The passport has no new visas or entry back to Germany, so either this one was lost or stolen or he was issued new papers that he made use of instead of this original passport...

    Rowno was the german/polish name for the Ukrain city of Rivne.

    i thought of the IMDB because they have the movie Kolberg mentioned on there so they do cover a lot of older international movies too

    It seems he did not work for the Reich's Propaganda in doing movies but a regular actor during the war, did not see any such movies on that link.

    Looking at the passport one can see that he some how joined the VIII. Fliegerkorps, or maybe was taken by them to perform...? would this mean he joined the air force temporarily?

    On-line information does say that the VIII. Fliegerkorps was also in Bulgaria and Athens, close to the dates mentioned in the passport.

    VIII. Fliegerkorps
