    Why did you immediately assume that this person was a "Nazi"? Any male German of this person's age was required to serve in the armed forces, no matter what their party affiliation or personal views may have been. Otherwise they would have been put away for a long time in a very dismal place - or worse. He also would have been very young at the time. This characterization doesn't seem quite fair. He may very well have suffered a lot more due to the Nazis than you can possibly imagine.

    •  This is quite true, and important to keep in mind (1+ / 0-)

      Not everyone who served as a soldier for Germant during WW2 was a Nazi, it sounds almost like this guy was happy to have been taken out of the situation, as your description sounds almost like he was wistful about being a prisoner in Canada.
