Jakob Klein, German Railways technical official
Wehrpass, 8.11.43. Including a small handwritten paper with some military adresses of his family (sons?).
Born 1890 in Saarbrücken. He was, son of a train driver, also working with the German national railways. He was a Techn. Reichsbahn Obersekretär, a technical official of the german railways. Not called-up for military service in WW2 probably because of his work at the German Railways and therefore not many entries in the pass. But as is visible below he was KIA 25.12.44 and buried in Neustadt (Germany, Rhheinland-Pfalz). As can be found online the railway complex was heavily under attack by US air force dive bombers at the day he died.
