    hello,

    so if anyone could give me some information about this factory:

    ALKETT, Altmárkisches Kettenwerk G.m.b.H Berlin-Borsigwalde, Breitenbaachtstrasse 33/36

    If your grandfather is still alive, and from what you seem to be saying he was forced labour, then he may be due some compensation from the German Government for that labour.
