About Ulrich Alexander Boschwitz



Boschwitz was the son of a Jewish businessman who died as a soldier in WW I, the same year Boschwitz was born. Ulrich Boschwitz received a strictly Protestant upbringing from his mother, Martha Wolgast Boschwitz. During the Nazi era, Boschwitz emigrated to Sweden with his mother, in 1935, after he had received a draft order from the Wehrmacht. From Sweden, he moved to Norway and in 1936 to France. In 1937/38, he stayed in Luxembourg, where he was expelled by the police and moved to Belgium. From there he and his mother went on to England, in 1939.

After the outbreak of WW II, they were interned as "enemy aliens" in a camp on the Isle of Man. After the British government decided to deport all male internees overseas, he was shipped to Sydney, Australia, on the HMT Dunera in the summer of 1940. From there he was taken to a camp in New South Wales. During his return trip to England, on 29 October 1942, he was on the MV Abosso, which was torpedoed in the Atlantic by the German submarine U-575 and sank. Boschwitz died at the age of 27, and his last manuscript probably sank with him.[1]
