Character Bio

Hans Meyer as Hauptmann Franz Ulman. Like the Kommandant he is a very fair, decent man. Before the war he had been an insurance assessor and has taken this same habit of mind into the war. He is in the habit of assessing risks and weighing up probabilities, but he is a kind man at heart and finds working under SS Major Mohn extremely difficult.

He is the character in the program who most approximates to the real-life Security Officer, Hauptmann (Captain) Reinhold Eggers, who was Security Officer at Colditz from November, 1940 until April, 1945. He was promoted to Chief of Security in 1944. A schoolmaster in civilian life, he wrote a couple of books about his experiences when the war was over.
