Originally a supporter of the Social Democrat party, he was forced to hide his political views after the Nazis suppressed the Social Democrats in 1933. He was involuntarily made a member of the Nazi Party through his membership in REGEDE (Reichs Union of the Deaf of Germany), but was not active in the Party, and in fact worked against its sterilization laws. After the war, an American military tribunal ordered him fired from his job due to his Nazi ties, not noticing his resistance activities. He appealed and was exonerated by an appeals court in 1948.
