Description:

Walter Paul KRAIZIZEK: German. Walter KRAIZIZEK, briefly a member of HITLER's SS Bodyguard in the mid 1930s, was working in South Africa at the outbreak of war in 1939, was interned there and escaped to Mozambique where he was employed by the local Abwehr in Lorenco Marques. KRAIZIZEK was expelled from Mozambique in 1944 and returned to Germany where he was recruited by Otto SKORZENY for his Werewolf unit which, however, he managed to avoid joining.
