Hardy-Kr_ger

Hardy Krüger was the first German actor to be accepted by film audiences outside Germany after the war, with his 1957 portrayal of Franz von Werra, the only German POW to successfully escape from Allied custody, in the British war film The One That Got Away. From 1941, Krüger went to an Adolf Hitler School in Bavaria and at age 15 made his film début in a German picture, The Young Eagles (from which the still of the young Krüger is taken). His acting career was interrupted when he was conscripted into the German Infantry in 1944 at the age of 16. In March 1945, Krüger was drafted into the 38th SS Division Nibelungen, where he was drawn into heavy fighting before being captured by American forces.
