Biography

Homann was born in Stoppenberg, Essen, Germany, on 24 June 1911. He was born as the fifth of ten children. He attended the elementary school in Stoppenberg. In 1941, he married Gertrud, and shortly afterwards went to the Air Force. At the age of 105, he said: I was lucky, I didn't get wounded and survived the one year in captivity in Italy reasonably well. In 1953, he moved to Borbeck, Essen with his family. They had a small apartment in Furstabtissinstrasse in Essen-Borbeck-Mitte, where he still lived at the age of 105.

At the age of 98, he still drove a car. Following the death of Gustav Gerneth on 22 October 2019, Homann became the oldest known living man in Germany.
