      In the German army (Africa Corps) during WWII. He was not called up at first because he was the only remaining male in the family (his brothers Otto and Emil were already in the army). He entered the army in 1942, and was sent to North Africa
      in an artillary unit. He was captured at Al Amain (?) by the U. S. Army in 1943, by which time the war in Africa was over.

      As a prisoner of war, he was sent to internment camps in the USA; first Camp Breckinridge KN, then Camp Butner NC, then Fort Jackson SC, and finally a camp in MS. He spent the most time in MS. He sailed from Africa to the USA on an Italian
      luxury liner that had been captured by the Americans; he recalls sleeping in hammocks in the former ballroom during the passage. He was released by the U. S. Army in 1946, and was sent to Sheffield, England to work repairing war damage. He
      remained in England until 1947 when he was repatriated to Germany.

      LEF met Oswald and Eugenia in Germany in April 2000; they lived in the home of their only son Karl Heinz Fausak.
