Friederich was studying at Cambridge, living incognito under the name of Count von Lingen, when war broke out in September, 1939. He was arrested and interned in May, 1940. He was held in England for several months, then sent to internment camps near Quebec City and, soon afterwards, Farnham, Quebec. In both camps, he was elected camp leader by fellow inmates.
