He took further courses in Germany, France, and the Netherlands, where he developed a special interest in hormone treatments. Although he had been a member of the Danish Nazi Party since the late 1930s, his private medical career only began to be affected after the German-occupation during World War II as he came to be considered a collaborator in his native country. In order to further his hormone research, he was introduced to SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Dr. Ernst-Robert Grawitz, chief physician of the SS and Police services, by the operatic tenor Helge
. He would later meet with the leader of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, and was given a prominent medical post with the SS in Prague in early 1944.
