Heinrich George was a German actor from the 1920s to the 1940s. He was a major German star who fully supported the Nazi regime. He was arrested in 1945 by the Soviets, and they reported that he had died in 1946 "after an appendix operation". But in 1994, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, records were found that told a very different story, and his remains were discovered (identified by comparing his DNA with his son, also a famous actor, Gotz George), it was discovered that the once quite heavy man had died of starvation in the Russian concentration camp! He was 46 years old.
