Re: Leo BRODJE - Army records #galicia

My Uncle Leo (!) was also a POW in Russia at the end of WWI. Fortunately, he came
home and survived the next war too against all odds. I inquired through a friend in
Vienna at the Kriegsarchiv as to his millitary records, and was given to understand
that for soldiers not hailing >from Austria proper:

a] they only have the records of officers, not enlisted men
b] records of enlisted men were sent to the capital cities of the new countries
formed after the breakup of the Austrian Empire, according to where the soldier's
city of origin was.

I do not know if this is true for those who never came home.

Hope this helps,

To all the many people who helped me with this name many thanks.!
I am now about to write to the Kriegsarchiv in Wien to establish if they
have a record of a Leo or Leib/Lev or Arie? Brojde, who died as a POW in
Russia in 1917, for such was his very tragic fate according to family
tradition.
