Jürgen Ohlsen

Date of Birth: 15th March 1917
Details of Death: 23rd September 1994
Country of Birth: Germany



Jürgen Ohlsen is remembered for his portrayal of the eponymous hero of the Nazi propaganda film, "Hitlerjunge Quex". John Holmstrom writes that "He was suitably blond and handsome, but with a disarmingly gentle, innocent air which was a propagandist's godsend. He had never acted, but played his scenes with expressive simplicity." But the Nazi's golden boy was soon to prove an embarrassment. Although he joined the Hitler Youth in 1934, he seems not to have taken the Party's anti-semitic stance seriously, for he had to be disciplined for repeatedly playing tennis with a Jew. Furthermore, by 1938 rumours of Ohlsen's homosexual behaviour were so widespread that a new slang term had entered the language, the verb "quexen" (literally, "to quex"), meaning to have homosexual sex. It has been alleged that Reichsjugendführer (Hitler Youth Leader) Baldur von Schirach became Ohlsen's lover. An Osnabrück Gestapo document seems to show that Ohlsen had even been earmarked to be sent to a concentration camp. He survived the war, however, and afterwards went to live in Austria.
