A Damascene dagger, heavily embossed in silver, served as a letter opener, and on the bookshelves five camels stretched their wood-carved, haughty heads. I learned something about Springer when I discovered, directly below the wood-carved caravan, the titles in his library.
There were Mein Kampf, a Manual for the Use of Arms, a Handbook for Prospective Merchants, and a variety of travel and war stories about North Africa , and also the Reibert, the notorious drill manual used in all German barracks squares by army instructions.

Durante la guerra sirvió en los SS (capitán) en el departamento VI del R.S.H.A. Al finalizar la guerra fue diputado en el Parlamento de Baja Sajonia por el Partido S.R.P.

En 1953, recibió del ex general Otto Ernesto Remer la orden de encontrar un asilo para él y para los miembros activos del S.R.P., cuando su presencia en Alemania era juzgada indeseable.

Durante el mismo año Springer llegó a Egipto bajo nombre árabe con la ayuda del Mufti Haj Amin El Husseini, conocido por su colaboración con Hitler durante la guerra.
