He was born in Gräfenhainichen bei Bitterfeld on June 8, 1872. After studies in mathematics and Physics, Ohnesorge became a Postal Official, but he developed inventions relating to the telephone. In 1920 he founded and led in Dortmund the first NSDAP Local Group (Orstgruppen) outside Bavaria. From 1924 to 1929 he held an administrative position at Berlin´s General Post Office. He became director of the Central Office of the Reich Postal System (Reichpost) in 1929. Ohnesorge subsequentely became state secretary in the Postal Ministry (march 1, 1933) and Reichpost minister (February 2, 1937). He unsuccessfully advocated the building of a German Atomic Bomb. Arrested at the war´s end, he was classified as "major offender" in 1948.

He died in Munich on February 1, 1962.

Deleted a few irrelevant posts. Let's stay on the topic of Reichsminister Ohnesorge and use the Lounge for off-topic emotional, humorous, "humorous", or otherwise non research-oriented posts.

Thanks.
