Friedrich Pamp * 1913

Hans-Albers-Platz 5 (Hamburg-Mitte, St. Pauli)

JG. 1913
TOT 22.12.1944

Emil Friedrich "Fritz" Pamp, born 29 Aug. 1913, imprisoned 1936, 1938 and 1943, probably died 22 Dec. 1944 near Danzig

Hans-Albers-Platz 5 (Wilhelmsplatz 5)

The miner Friedrich Pamp came from Querrenburg (today Bochum), was married and had a son. In Hamburg he first worked at the shipyard Blohm + Voss before he began working as a male prostitute.

According to his prisoner file card, Friedrich Pamp was imprisoned for "fornication" at the Hamburg City Remand Prison from 12 Dec. 1935 until 31 Jan. 1936. In Apr. 1938 a former sexual partner identified him to the police. As a former professional boxer at the arena "Indra" in St. Pauli, he resisted arrest. From 13 to 21 Apr. 1938 he was held in police "protective custody" at Fuhlsbüttel concentration camp. Since the homosexual acts of which he was accused had taken place before sentences had become harsher, Hamburg Local Court sentenced him after section 175 of the old edition of the Reich’s penal code to one year and one week in prison. Fritz Pamp is one of the few male prostitutes who did not denounce any of his sexual partners during police interrogation.

After his imprisonment at Glasmoor Penitentiary, he was moved to Emsland camp IV Walchum so that he could be deployed in forced labor. In 1943 proceedings were conducted against him at the court of Division no. 526 in Wuppertal for unknown reasons.

He may have been "reprieved" for "front line probation". Friedrich Pamp probably perished on 22 Dec. 1944 near Danzig at "Drewen Station" since he never reported back from his operation.
