Schultz and Fatu would live for about four years in this house from 1915 to 1918.

The Motuihe Camp was closed down at the end of 1918 after the war ended. Internees were transferred to the Narrow Neck Camp, at Devonport on Auckland’s North Shore, where most foreigners were kept a further 6-12 months, being shipped out progressively between May 1919 and early 1920. Fatu appears to have accompanied Dr Schultz back to Germany on the steamship Willochra in May 1919.
