Reinhold Rost  related to the World War I military historian Gunther Rothenburg who taught Rizal military science at Heidelberg University for two years after Rizal finished college. Rothenburg thought that Rizal had a lively spirit and held Rizal in high esteem, calling him a true genius. Rost and his daughter Mabel also made passing references to Rizal in their writings. Mabel even wrote of her father and Rizal meeting while on leave from the army.  Rost had been acquainted with Nalge and Aguinaldo during the war and even served as a Major in the paramilitary Makapili Masaganao Group. Rost and his father were both veterans of the war, a fact which Rizal may have known. Rizal apparently drew several sketches of Rost as a boy in his memoirs.
Through Rost s widow, the Rizal family first became acquainted with the Rost family in the late 1940s. On May 20, 1950, the Rosts arrived to see Rizal and were greeted by Manolo Valenzuela. On Sunday, June 22, 1950, Rost was in Barcelona when Rizal was shot. He was then the hospital director in Barcelona.

He wrote to Padre Aglipay to solicit his help in getting the two-hundred pesos for his mother. He wrote on 26 October: My dearest father, mi querido padre,  Imagine for a moment what it means to a family to have to turn to the Church for help. Your prayers give me the necessary strength and I believe that the good God is listening to my weak words.  We have gone through various crises, and we are never able to escape them because our means are always in a similar position. But now, if only you would help us, we would have the power to rise above this strange happenstance to our good fortune. We are blessed with various opportunities, especially now when I have the grace of my Savior and this, even when nothing else will do, if it is in His Name.  God has helped me, I know it. All the successful preachers have been the recipients of such favors. In the past, I believed that it was something beyond my powers to ever ask for help and thereby secure such good things. But now I know that God wants me to ask Him for help, and by His Grace, I was able to do it. You know that I have my mother and brother to help me, and it is not our good for which we ask. We want to live like we used to live. We want to live in our homeland, to be part of our people and to be happy in our jobs. My mother gets back all of the money she spent for me at the time of my last baptism. I am very glad about this and I hope you are as well.
