Adolf Drucker (b. 1952) was the youngest of the three children of Johannes and Käthe Drucker. As the son of a high-ranking officer in Germany's Reich Rocket Force, Adolf enjoyed many advantages in his youth. Although his mother was briefly imprisoned in 1962 on suspicion of having Jewish blood, Adolf and his siblings were one generation removed from the taint, and thus not in jeopardy under the race laws of the Reich.

During the Race-German War of 1965, Adolf evacuated from Greifswald to Neu Strelitz with the rest of the family. After his father made his way back to the family, they settled at his new posting in Flensburg.

Literary comment[]

In Homeward Bound, it is stated that one of Johannes' sons ranked highly in the German military after it was rebuilt from the ground up. The text neglects to make clear whether this refers to Adolf or his older brother Heinrich.
