Abstract

“Why are you interested in this man?” they usually ask me. I don't know the answer. It just happened. Maybe my interest in the life of Fritz Houtermans started when I began coming across repeated references in various books to a gifted German physicist who emigrated to the USSR after Hitler came to power, was arrested by the Soviets in 1937 as a German spy and then was extradited back to Germany in 1940, only to return to occupied Kharkov two years later with the conquering Nazis.
