I am trying to learn about my great-grandfather Gottlob Kindlmann (who died in Austria around 1967). One of the few things I know about his life is that he worked for the Austrian railways. I recently found an announcement of his appointment:http://goo.gl/MLR7e1
grom the 18 January 1931 Reichspost:https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichspost_(Zeitung
The announcement says (via google translate) "Appointments at the national railways. ... Dr. Gottlob Kindlmann". I am not certain what it says there about the nature of his appointment, but my 2 questions are:
1) How can I track down employee records for the Austrian railways from that time? I am hoping that those records have something about birth year or birth place, if not other details such as when or why he may have moved within the ranks of the railway system.
2) We know how the Austrian national railway systems were used in WWII: https://www.thelocal.at/20141110/austrian-railways-exhibitio...
Where can I learn about whatever legal processing of Austrian railway employees took place at the end of the war, to determine who might be punished or imprisoned for what? What authority would have administered that, and where are their records?
Thanks for any tips,
