On 20 March 1941, he was arrested on the same grounds once more, and was moved from the Steinwache to Neuengamme concentration camp on 22 May.
On 14 September 1941, Bergermann was sent from Neuengamme to Dachau concentration camp as a “preventive detainee”.
On 16 January 1942, he was moved as part of an “nvalid transport” from Dachau to Schloss Hartheim near Linz.
