Does anyone have a photo of Hanns Guther von Kirschbaum? Before the war he was stationed in Dairen, Manchuria.
Thank you.

Hello BIll,

Who was he, apart from the information you've given us? Depending on that, your question may get more replies in one of the other sections.

I doubt that this is the correct name of this man. Rather it´s "Hanns Günther von Kirschbaum" or "Hans Günther von Kirschbaum".

Hello Bill...!

Sorry, I have no picture of this guy, but his real name is "Hans Günter Maximilian Albert von Kirschbaum", born 08.03.1897 in Hohenberg a.d. Eger. He was married with "Hedwig, Freiin (or Freifrau?) von Ostini, born 19.02.1897 in Würzburg. Both had a daughter "Margot Lieselotte von Kirschbaum" born 09.10.1930 in Dairen, Manchuria! May that helps to find a picture somewhere....? I guess it's maybe asked in reference to the Sino-German Cooperation..!?

Best regards


Stefan

Hello Stefan,

that indeed seems to be the man. Hans Günter von Kirschbaum was the representative of a Hamburg trading company, Illies & Co., in Manchuria.

In a second role he served as NSDAP-Landesgruppenleiter (head of NSDAP) in Manchuria/Manchuoko till Dec. 1943.

Finally von Kirschbaum also was the chief representative of the Abwehr (German military intelligence) in Manchuria.
