-I have an update!!! In my list I have Matthes Ziegler appointed to Dienstleiter der NSDAP on (April 20, 1941), but maybe being appointed to Oberdienstleiter in (October 1941). Well, you can nix the Oberdienstleiter appointment in (October 1941). I have found a transmission from the BfdÜ on (December 7, 1943) that lists Ziegler as Dienstleiter z.b.V der PKzl on that date. So, we know that Ziegler still held the rank of Dienstleiter der NSDAP as late as (December 7, 1943) and no way could have been promoted to Oberdienstleiter in (October 1941)!!!!

-I have another update to my list!!! I have Willy Stöhr listed as Dienstleiter der NSDAP, but with no dates only the date of (January 30, 1945) when he was officially promoted to Gauleiter. Well, I have found a transmission to the Reichsschatzmeister on (January 1, 1944) and again on (March 27, 1944) that lists Stöhr as HBerL Willy Stöhr (Gau Hessen-Nassau) zur PKzl. This means that Stöhr held the rank of Hauptbereichsleiter der NSDAP as late as (March 27, 1944). So, Stöhr's promotion to Dienstleiter had to come sometime in between (March 27, 1944) and (January 30, 1945) when he was appointed to official NSDAP Gauleiter. It is now narrowed down to a 10 month window!!! Can anyone get more specific?

-I can now narrow the Willy Stöhr Dienstleiter der NSDAP promotion even further!!!! I have found in a source that states on (September 28, 1944) the Führer appointed the former Dienstleiter in der PKzl., Willy Stöhr, m.d.F.d.G.b. und zum Stellvertretenden Gauleiter des Gaues Westmark. I thought that Stöhr would have held on to his Dienstleiter rank until his official appointment to Gauleiter on (January 30, 1945), but according to that statement by the Führer I am wrong. Hitler calls Stöhr the former Dienstleiter der PKzl!!! So, we now know that Stöhr must have been promoted to Dienstleiter der NSDAP sometime in between (March 27, 1944) when he was still a Hauptbereichsleiter and (September 28, 1944) when he was appointed m.d.F.d.G.b. b. by Hitler. Now it is only a 6 moth window to find his Dienstleiter der NSDAP promotion!!!!

Igor,
-Are you sure about Buchner? My source has Franz Xaver Buchner holding the rank of Oberbereichsleiter der NSDAP not Oberdienstleiter!!!! I also have him listed as Oberbereichsleiter on my other list.

My earlier posted question drowned, so I'll try again:

Does anyone know for which period of time Karl-Heinrich (Heinz) Hederich was the Deputy Chairman of the Parteiamtlichen Prüfungskommission zum Schutze des nationalsozialistischen Schrifttums (PPK)? Did he hold this post at the end of the war? If not - who did?

Best

Igor,
-I always wondered if Bruckner had an NSDAP ranking. If Bruckner was an Oberdienstleiter der NSDAP then wouldn't stand to reason that his successor, Julius Schaub, held an equal rank? Also, Schaub may have even held a higher rank as he held the post until the end of the Third Reich and he had ample time for promotions.

In case of the Schaub, I have no any information on his NSDAP rank.
