      Reason for his arrest on July 25, 1944: Shirking forced labor (euphemistically called Arbeitseinsatz, labor mission, mostly in German industry).
      In the preserved Neuengamme death books (the registry of deceased prisoners), several diseases are listed from which prisoners died: enteritis, tuberculosis, dysentery, heart failure, and so on. This is obfuscation. The actual cause of death was almost always the miserable conditions in the camp. Moreover, the data are completely unreliable. Often only something was written at the registration of a death.
