The Obst. Rudolph

and

Count Joseph Ledebur - Wicheln

Case

 

Status: 8 October 2018

 

 We will start with the Friedrich Rudolph case.

He once was the Alst Leiter of Abwehr (I) Stelle, in Paris

between roughly - June 1940 and spring 1944

The latter date is an estimation, as we will encounter different data from the various sources interrogated, just in 1945 - 1946.

Supplemented as usual with my additional comments, always recognisable as: (AOB, my comment)

Our contribution will, Deo volente, consist of two sections:

First, dealing with the history of Friedrich Rudolph, once Alst (Abwehrleitstelle) in Paris. Their famous location was, mainly, in Hotel Lutetia.

 

Of course, I have made a selection, as to pass-on to our readers the various bits-and-pieces in an optimal manner.

Nevertheless, some doublets, in various contexts are inevitable.

The next succession is about the Austrian:  Count Joseph Ledebur - Wicheln

who under-took subversive actions in Paris (and elsewhere), during his time he stayed there.

May I wonder?  British files aren't very accurate in regard to true names; a "Count" born certainly had been baptised with more names than a single one!
