Lösch was a member of the "Confessing Church" (Bekennende Kirche), a Protestant group that spoke out openly against Adolf Hitler and was led by Martin Niemöller. He refused to emigrate and went into hiding to continue his anti-Nazi work, primarily in Kiel. Due to the deprivations of this illegal existence, he died, just days after World War II had ended, from scarlet fever in Ratzeburg.
