Phil,
Thanks,
I was not for sure, but I had heard that he became the official Gauleiter of Bayreuth shortly before the war ended. Thanks again.

Pitino:

The subject on Ruckdeschel has been covered in another post somewhere. But the fact is that he never received any official directive or PROMOTION to Gauleiter rank. The best we can say about him is that he was an unofficial "acting" gauleiter.

In regards to the Karten gauleiters. The NSDAP in Munich NEVER "recognized" any Austrian gauleiter in that rank or postion before the actual takeover. None of the men listed with the exception of Kutschera as acting gauleiter and Rainer were ever recognized as OFFICIAL gauleiters and never appeared as such in the NSDAP yearbooks. All Austrian gauleiters before the takeover are to be regarded as unofficial.

Pitino,
Both you and Mark Costa have omitted to mention Hubert Klausner, the first 'official' Gauleiter of Kärnten, 22 May 1938 - 12 Feb 1939.
