Staff Sergeant Joe Nishimoto of U.S. Forces 442 unit arrested and examined about the one Japanese German soldier in the Second-World-War last stage and Italy.

The Japanese German soldier was coming for Germany to the university in Berlin as a foreign student. And it was the sergeant conscripted by Wehrmacht.


It seems that 33th Waffen Grenadier Division der SS "Charlemagne" also had Japanese people.
