He had served as Consul General of Germany in Madas, the present Chennai and had served as Ambassador of Germany in other countries four times. He was very much moved by the plight of Leprosy and polio affected in India and in 1985 he resigned from Foreign Service and spent half-year periods in India for their cause.
