Gerhart Drabsch studied philology at Heidelberg, lived at Castle Teupitz / Mark Brandenburg and was the author of several children's books and Indian stories such as his most famous work, Die Indianergeschichte (The Indian Story). His stories always focused on youthful heroes who developed into heroic fighters. Drabsch has been missing in action since April 1945 in the last German Reich offensive “Volkssturm” of World War II. His exact date of death is not known.
Between 1937-45 he and his wife Karla operated a handicraft production facility of wood carving and housekeeping, sewing in the Nazi spirit. Above the castle gate they emblazoned the “Germanic” symbol from the cycle of work and the tree of life. His literary work from 1928 was a German heroic work called The German Olympia.
