Life

Louis Ferdinand was born in 1944 in Golzow, Neumark, Province of Brandenburg. In 1967, he volunteered to serve in the West German army (Bundeswehr), with the goal of becoming a reserve officer. In 1972, he started an apprenticeship at a bank and continued to perform military service on a regular basis. In 1977, he was involved in a severe accident during military manoeuvres, when he was pinned between two vehicles.
