Obituary: Varjo Jurisoo, drafted by three armies, immigrated to US - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Monday, November 14, 2016

WWII to a prisoner-of-war camp to the American Midwest.“He went through more in his first 25 years of life than I ever will in my whole life,” said his son David Jurisoo.Varjo Jurisoo, 91, of Coon Rapids, died Oct. 8 after a long battle with cancer.It would be the last fight for the RV-loving, former theater actor who was forced to volley bullets across the Narva River alongside the German army during WWII as his older brother, Uno Jurisoo, unbeknown to him, was firing back on behalf of the Russians. Both had been conscripted.Jurisoo, who was also known as “Joe,” had first been drafted by the Russians at the age of 16, but dodged that only to be drafted by the Germans at age 19 in 1943. He was injured by gunfire during the war, but recovered and returned to battle. He would never see his father again. Political tensions and safety concerns kept him from visiting his mother or brother until he returned to Estonia in 1991, which is when they learned that the brothers had fought on opposing sides.“He never complained about it,” David Jurisoo noted. “It’s not like he thought, ‘My life’s unfair.’?”Jurisoo and other Estonian soldiers fighting for Germany eventually surrendered to U.S. troops and spent a year in a Belgian prisoner-of-war camp. Soon after his release, he was hired as a guard at the Palace of Justice, where he helped guard Rudolf Hess and other war criminals during the Nuremberg trials.Unable to return home for fear of persecution, Jurisoo immigrated to the United States in the late 1940s, landing in Anaheim, Calif. He picked oranges and was given supervisory duties because of his fluency with the languages spoken by the refugee workers. But it wasn’t long before he was drafted yet a third time — by the U.S. Army for the Korean War, for which he served in Europe.When Jurisoo returned to the United States, he bounced around Chicago, North Dakota and Minneapolis, where he acted in local theater productions, before returning to Chicago. It was there a...
