During the Second World War, in Germany ... Officially, the Stalag 13, a German prison camp, was directed with an iron fist by Colonel Klink and Sergeant Schultz. Unofficially, they are manipulated in style by Colonel Hogan and his men, American prisoners, who enter and leave the stalag according to their sabotage missions or their gallant meetings.

Papa Schultz is an American television series from the 1960s which was broadcast on CBS for six seasons, from 1965 to 1971. The series took place during the Second World War and follows the adventures of a group of American prisoners of war which are imprisoned In a German prison camp camp. The group is led by an American army officer named Colonel Robert E. Hogan, known as "Papa Schultz".

Hogan's Heroes (in VO) was broadcast in France under two titles. When the series landed on the coasts of Canal + in 1987, it was called Stalag 13, according to the name of the prisoner camp where Hogan and his men are locked up. During her visit to M6, she became Papa Schultz, named after the unpaid German officer.

Image magic and illusion: salt was used to simulate snow!

Werner Klemperer, Howard Caine, Leon Askin and John Banner, who embodied the German officers, were all Jews.

The famous leather jacket carried by Colonel Hogan was one of Frank Sinatra's costumes in the Express of Colonel Von Ryan. He came out of the boxes in 2003, more than 30 years after the series, for the film Auto Focus telling the life of Bob Crane.

Richard Dawson (who plays the role of the English corporal Peter Newkirk), had interviewed for the role of Hogan, but having too much the British accent he was not selected for the main role. This led to discord during the shooting between him and Bob Crane who was selected for the role of Hogan.
