Oh, the .44 German was most likely the American designation for the 11mm German service revolver cartridge.

Barnes' "Cartridges of the World" says it looks a lot like the .44 Russian, but with a heeled bullet. The one in my collection certainly does from a case dimension standpoint, but with the heeled bullet it looks a lot more like the .44 Colt to me.
