    Hi,

    During our times, is there a list of Abwehr agents dating from 1933 to 1944?
    Can one search an existing site or list for an individual one suspects him to be an agent?

    Tnx,

    Pity...
    I suspect a holder of a German passport being an agent, dating from 1938 to 1941 and list as a trader/merchant, he travelled to:

    Palestine, Greece, Albania, Italy, Cyprus, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Poland, USSR...

    Can you expatiate on your theory of this man's involvement in the Abwehr?

    No, this is only a guess.
    He could be a regular John Doe or some sort of agent gathering or sending information.
    I just find it odd that he traveled to so many countries before the war and during the war...

    His occupation is given as Kaufmann [meaning merchant, trader, businessman etc.]. These may well have been business trips related to import/export matters.

    Indeed, could be so...
    Still, is there a list of past agents prepared by the allies or historians?
    Tnx

    As far as I know there isn't such a list although you could always contact the various archives and ask, but considering that such professionals could of been recruited by the Allies after the war such a file could well still be classified and not cleared for release into the public domain.

    And while I believe his movements were related to his job as a trader/businessman if he was an agent the chances are that he would of travelled under a false name so the name in the passport wouldn't be on any such list anyway as it wouldn't be his real one.

    Very logical.
    Tnx for the insight.
