Kurt Rutta
Luftwaffe Afrikaner

Pictured at right. All I know of Kurt is that he is the uncle of a very good friend of mine, Horst Rosteck. Horst was a child when his father was KIA as a Stuka pilot in Russia. Horst and his remaining family fled East Prussia as the Russians approached. They were in Dresden when it was bombed. They survived after days of being burried in a celler. Upon being dug out, they fled to the west. Horst told me that one day a strange man came asking for his mother. That was his uncle Kurt who had just been released from POW camp in the USA. I believe he was captured in Africa. Horst said that uncle Kurt brought him a pair of ice skates from the States.
