They were taken directly to Flossenbürg concentration camp in Bavaria, and locked in separate individual cells. They remained in solitary confinement until the camp was liberated in April 1945, other than an hour each night for exercise, but not at the same time. This was at the express command of SS-Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler who did not want such a prominent officer mixing with other prisoners and wearing the pink triangle.
The lady, who was very pretty, 'even for a girl', was allowed to live only in that his father had important connections in the Nazi party, and paid a large bribe. Money from the father, plus the trade of the jewellery that he was wearing ensured that these two prisoners got extra food.
The SS intended to have them shot before the camp was liberated in 1945, but in the general chaos of that time they managed to escape.
