About half a year later Sohl was transferred to the former main camp VI A, the Civilian Internment Camp No. 7, now run by the British Rhine Army and known as Camp Roosevelt. The last stop was the - formerly main camp VI K (326) - Eselheide internment camp near Paderborn, from which he was released on May 17, 1947.
