An excerpt from an article written less than two years after the war, dealing with whereabouts of Third Reich movie stars and famous composers.

From Badische neueste Nachrichten, 08.02.1947, p. 4

Interesting that Hans Carste is mentioned as fallen on the Eastern Front, while he was in the Soviet captivity until next year.

Well it just goes to show how long it took to find info on some (countless, actually) people after the war, including the celebrities. Sadly, especially for their families, the fates of numerous people remain unknown. But Carste was not one of them; not only did he survive, but he also successfully continued his career after the war, reaching top positions in the music industry.

Cheers,
Ivan
