Unfortunately, I can't buy this book for obvious reasons. VISA and MASTERCARD payment cards do not work in our country.

Generalmajor Ing. Johann Franz Schwab (römisch-katholisch)
* 25.09.1887 in Wien-Neubau
† 14.07.1965 in Wien-Margareten

Eltern: k.k. Lieutenant Johann Schwab & Johanna, geb. Frank

14.05.1924 aus der römisch-katholischen Kirche ausgetreten und zur evangelischen AB übergetreten; 22.09.1927 wieder eingetreten

28.05.1924 Heirat in Wien (evangelisch AB) mit Helene, geb. Katzer (1892–1926)
Are we positive that Schwab was promoted Gen. Maj.?

I have his Oberst RDA as 10.11.1933 (Austrian) and German: 01.03.1938 (34).

Dear Jürgen,

yes, we are sure. Schwab was promoted to Generalmajor "im Wege der Rehabilitierung" with 11.12.1946, BMF Zl. 400.960-II/1946 and backdated to 01.05.1945.

„Wurde aus Abstammungsgründen seiner Gattin vorzeitig in den Ruhestand versetzt. Durch diese Regelung wurde Oberst d.R. Schwab als ernannter Vorstand einer wichtigen Abteilung des ehem. Bundesministeriums für Landesverteidigung trotz hervorragender fachlicher und charakterlicher Fähigkeit aus seiner Laufbahn geworfen. Da er seit 1933 einen Dienstposten der III. Dienstklasse innehatte, hätte er spätestens im Jahre 1939 die II. Dienstklasse erreicht.“

Here some details from his pre-war career:

14.03.1938 übernommen ins deutsche Heer und eingeteilt beim Archivstab HGr.Kdo 5
10.11.1938 vorgesehen für eine Einteilung beim Stab des Artilleriekommandeurs 35, diese Einteilung aufgehoben, verbleibt beim HGr.Kdo 5/Ia Ger.Mun. mit dö. RDA 01.03.1938 [4]
31.01.1939 entlassen aus dem Wehrdienst mit dem Recht zum Tragen der Uniform des Art.Rgt. 102

Regards

Christian

I am doing some research and would like to ask if anybody heard about a fellow called Stadnik, who lived before the war in Galizia, Bircza, Nowa Wies. He enlisted in Waffen SS Galizien division and was later brought by the British to Britain. I would like to find more information about him. Anybody knows any Stadniks in UK?

Thank you
