I have been asked by my mother in law if I could carryout research on my father in law who died in the 70's.
I am aware that he was enlisted in Berlin late in 1944 at the age of 17 and was present at the Oderbruch during the soviet offensive there. He was wounded (gun shot to lower leg) captured and released and finished the war as a pow with the British on the Luneburger heide.
I was hoping that members here may be able to inform me if there is an agency in Germany that relatives can apply to in order to obtain military records relating to their relatives.
I am sure that I have seen a thread on WRF giving contact details of such an agency however despite searching have been unable to locate it.
Many thanks in advance
