Date of return from Germany[edit]

"...until 1938, when World War II broke out" is obviously wrong. Does anyone have better information?

Education in Hamburg[edit]

Schmitz was educated at the Realgymnasium Obersekunda in Hamburg is - I'm sorry - rubbish. A Realgymnasium is (or rather, was then) the german word for something like high school, and the Obersekunda usually is the 11th year of your school life, counting from the first year after Kindergarten. The actual name of that school may have to stay unknown.

I found this information at google books, on page 1065 in the chapter on "Contemporary Science Fiction Authors II", Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature, part 2, by R Reginald, 1979.

Maybe someone can look into the real book and correct the article. --Kuer.gee (talk) 21:46, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I was just about to post the same here, after reading the intro. This needs fixing. I will remove the class level designation, replacing the definite with an indefinite article for the Realgymnasium. --chris 12:32, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Date: Left Germany, moved to US[edit]

Nihonjoe. Re. "it's 1939, so stop changing it". I haven't changed anything, I merely reverted your unsupported edit. What's your evidence that it's 1939 as opposed to 1938? Incidentally, you're the one responsible for the 1938 date in the first place.[1].

If you know for certain, great. If not, change the language to what I suspect, but have been unable to confirm, the current cites say (i.e. before the outbreak of WWII) and ditch the dates. Support for using this vague format, in his own words.[2] Obviously, access to page 1066 might well give us the answer.

Support for 1938.[3] Hardly definitive though, as there are similar ones that say 1939. Bromley86 (talk) 10:43, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
