Friedrich Otto Karl Klopp (1878-1957) – Part VI

Employment and Early Retirement after WWI

Klopp Family Tree I – II

One way to read all the posts on Karl Klopp is to go to the Klopp family page.

Karl Klopp returned to Hüttenkofen after his discharge from the army in 1918. Soon afterward he entered into sales negotiations regarding his property at Hüttenkofen and under economic pressure was looking for a new employment opportunity, which he found at a dairy near Passau at the Austrian border. There on January 1, 1920 his only son Karl was born.

In 1922 Karl had his application as machinist at the military service provider rejected on the basis of lack of qualifying documentation for this type of work. However, upon application of the Bavarian Defense HQ in Munich, he was officially recognized as lieutenant in retirement and was permitted to wear the officer’s uniform, which no doubt was perceived as a great honor in those days.

On March 1, 1928 Karl Klopp moved back from the Passau region to Straubing, after he succeeded in being taken over by the Bavarian Justice System. Until his retirement he worked in the County Justice Office in Straubing. It appears that Karl was removed prematurely from his employment because of differences with the Nazis, who were in the process of controlling Germany’s justice system.

After WWII in the early 1950’s as an invited China veteran in the Anniversary Reunion of the Seventh US Cavalry Division, which during that time  happened to be stationed in Straubing-Mittelhardtshausen.

After his father’s death on June 9, 1957 in Straubing, his son Karl bequeathed a compilation of documents and certificates to the historical military office in Freiburg, Breisgau. Friedrich Karl Otto Klopp, who was buried in the Straubing main cemetary, had three children: Luise, born on 29.12.1907; Auguste on 1.12.1908 and Karl on 1.1.1920. Here ends the report on the third child of Peter Friedrich and Emma Klopp.

  1. Some really interesting family facts from your family history here Peter, but it was those stunning photos that really blew me away! Especially the first one…that amazing stripe of yellow…oilseed rape? in the field across the centre. So picturesque. Thoughtful selection my friend.
