Grass was of Kashubian ethnicity and was born in the Free City of Danzig (now Gdańsk, Poland). In May 1945, while serving as a teenaged soldier in the Waffen SS since 1944, he was taken prisoner by U.S. forces and released in April 1946. Trained as a stonemason and sculptor, he began writing in the 1950s. In his fiction, he frequently returned to the Danzig of his childhood.
