On the 5th of September 1950, Klaus spent 3 days interred in the State Insane and Idiot Asylum of Dalldorf. He was diagnosed as having schizophrenia after professing his love for a woman twice his age, who did not reciprocate his feelings.  His file states "He says, they love each other deeply. She has long since forbidden his visits, but he has not turned away. Instead he sleeps on her balcony and hides himself in her apartment without her knowledge."

Aged 16 Kinski was drafted into the Germany army but served only two days in combat before being captured by English troops and becoming a prisoner of war.
