In March 1947, Ingeborg emigrated with her family to Berkley, California, where Ingeborg’s parents had moved to in 1939 and immediately applied for American citizenship. Herbert arrived in the United States in December 1947. Attempts by Herbert to regain a foothold there in the film business failed. Engelsing remained a lawyer until his untimely death in 1962.


In the spring of 1945, agents of the CIC, the intelligence service of the US Army, operating out of Zurich, contacted Engelsing and used him as a source of information on members of the Nazi state. At the beginning of 1950, Engelsing made himself available as a witness in the preliminary proceedings against the then representative of the prosecution in the “Red Orchestra Trial”, the Nazi apologist and General Judge Manfred Roeder. However, the proceedings were discontinued.

Before the end of the war, Engelsing moved from Berlin to Konstanz at the time in the French occupation zone in Germany. Engelsing was admitted to the bar of the French military courts in 1945, where he was one of two lawyers admitted to practice. In the fall of 1945 was employed by the Konstanz district court. He ran a criminal and civil law practice. In addition to the usual mandates, he also represented victims of Nazi Aryanization as well as German and French Sinti families in restitution proceedings. He also took on mandates for some former southwest German military economic leaders in denazification proceedings.


At the end of the war, he had made his last entertainment film with director Gustav Fröhlich on the island of Mainau on Lake Constance in the summer of 1944, and brought his family from Berlin to safety on Lake Constance.


Beginning in 1943, the couple began to change their address, moving numerous times over the next two years, so that Ingeborg wasn’t drafted into a Reich women’s work unit (Berufsausbildungsprogramm Ost). These women’s work units were introduced by the Reich Minister of the Economy Walther Funk in 1943 and would have meant Ingeborg being assigned to a farming unit in occupied Poland.


In 1940, Adam and Greta Kuckhoff met Harro and Libertas Schulze-Boysen at the home of the Engelsing’s. In 12–13 May 1940, the couple spent the weekend at Liebenberg castle, the family home of Libertas Schulze-Boysen, where they were joined by the Schumachers, Günther Weisenborn and other friends in the group. During the weekend, the group discussed writing leaflets and formulated a method of distributing them. After the war Weisenborn stated of Engelsing, who was familiar with film and political figures, tolerated our work and encouraged it wherever he could. He was a so-called contact man, which means that our organization used the connections he had with key figures in the Third Reich. In early 1941, when Schulze-Boysen began to spy for the Soviet Union, Engelsing broke of their friendship, as he believed it was an act of betrayal.


In 1939, the Engelsing’s introduced Maria Terwiel and her future fiancé Helmut Himpel into the group. Himpel had been the Engelsings family dentist for a number of years. His work was so good that Engelsing had recommended him to his film friends and that led to him to build a career as a dentist to German film stars. Engelsing also introduced the industrialist Hugo Buschmann to the group. Buschmann, an ardent anti-nazi, rented one of Engelsings apartments, in the house at 2 Bettinastraße in Grunewald that the Engelsings moved into in 1939.


In 1938, Engelsing married Ingeborg Engelsing née Kohler. Kohler came from a prominent Berlin based legal family. The couple were engaged in 1936, however Kohler was classified as half-Jewish or Mischling, a pejorative term. When she went for her race characteristics exam, and although the photographer attempted to portray her as tall, blond and slim, she was refused permission to marry. The couple began to look for help and received it, in the form of the actor Käthe Dorsch. Dorsch was a childhood friend of Hermann Göring and through her advocacy managed to persuade Goring to present the couple’s case to Hitler. Finally in September 1937, permission was received from Hitler and the couple married in England. The couple had a son, Thomas (16 August 1938) and a daughter, Catherine (9 September 1941).

Both Herbert and Ingeborg Engelsing were anti-Nazis who were active during the war in resisting the Nazis. They collected and distributed food to dispossessed Jews and other people who didn’t possess ration-cards and identity papers. In 1938, the Engelsings met the couple Harro Schulze-Boysen and Libertas Schulze-Boysen at a party, held by a mutual friend. From that point forward they became good friends and began to meet frequently. Ingeborg became particularly close friends with Libertas, who confided in her about her slightly scandalous past; about her mother running away with her art tutor and her parents divorcing. Ingeborg was largely kept in the dark about the groups resistance activities, as being both a young mother and Jewish made her particularly vulnerable.


He was responsible for distribution the films, such as Willi Forst’s upbeat comedy Tomfoolery (Allotria) produced in 1936. He held a similar position at several film companies until the end of the war in 1945. Engelsing’s films include the Forst productions Serenade (1937) and the 1939 film Bel Ami, but also the Nazi propaganda films The Fox of Glenarvon (Der Fuchs von Glenarvon), My Life for Ireland (Mein Leben für Irland) and Jakko. Between 1937 and 1944, Engelsing was executive producer on thirty-four films. He was sufficiently successful to maintain his own division in 1942 when Tobis Films lost its independence when it was merged with Terra, Bavaria Film and Wien-Film to form UFA GmbH by the Nazis.


In 1935, he became a lawyer at the Tobis Film company, after the Nazis took over the courts. When Tobis was purged by the Nazis he was offered a position in 1937 as a director of production groups (Herstellungs-Gruppenleiter) that involved retraining. Engelsing retained the right to practice as a lawyer, by joining the firm of Carl Langbehn, a well known and prominent law firm.


Herbert Enke Wilhelm Engelsing (born 2 September 1904 in Overath, died 10 February 1962 in Konstanz) was a right-wing German Catholic lawyer in Berlin and resistance fighter against the Nazi regime. When the Nazi regime began, Engelsing found himself unable to work in law. Instead he found work in the German film industry, becoming a very successful film director and producer with Tobis Film. In 1938, Engelsing and his wife Ingeborg became close friends with Libertas and Harro Schulze-Boysen who were part of a resistance organisation against the Nazis. Engelsing maintained a high profile in the film business and low profile in the resistance, but made his mark by introducing many new people into the organisation, brokering deals and providing secure locations for meetings. The couple survived the war and moved to the United States in 1947. Engelsing did not receive permanent residency due to false accusations of being the head of a Soviet sleeper cell.
