Stranger #10 - Johann

Meet Johann

Johann is really called John, but goes by the name of Johann Albrecht von Paulus when he participates in the Kampfgruppe StahlKreiger group of WWII re-enactors. I met him at the War And Peace show in Kent. He was in the role of an Officer in charge of the field hospital, and had a great back-story to tell about his character, including photos in his wallet of his fictitious “children”. He has been doing this for about 4 years, and really seemed to enjoy the camaraderie of his Company. The KSK are a non-political group who don’t endorse the Nazi beliefs in any way, but someone has to play the enemy when it comes to putting on an accurate show! Thanks for talking the time to talk, “Johann” – sorry your mug of tea went cold in the process!
