Dear Henrik,

My Grandfather is born in Austria. Since 1938 he has had German Citizenship.

He was living between 1945 to 50 at Stralsund and worked as Chief of the Electric Power Station. I’ve some documents recorded (Identity Card in German and Russian language) (Tax Card). 1954 he emigrated to Argentina.

Under his leadership is the Ruegendamm rebuilt after World War 2.

I'm interested in Pictures of these times. Can you help me?

Olaf (Steuer).
