    Many thanks for re-posting the photograph.

    That confirms he died in 1944 (note the "+" behind the year).

    "Bruder Pepi" means "brother Pepi"; "Pepi" being one of various affectionate forms for the name Josef/Joseph.

    By the way: I assume you know his last name. So; have you checked the online database of the German War Graves Commission ( Gräbersuche-Online )?

    You might be able to find the date and place of his death and the place where he is buried.

    (No guarantees, of course, as not all war dead are catalogued, but it is worth a try.)

    Then, unfortunately, he is not in the Volksbund database.

    They do list three men named Josef Platter. However, one died in WW1. The other two were a Gefreiter (born 21st April 1920 / died 4th Feb. 1945) and an Obergefreiter (born 1st Jan. 1919 / died 4th April 1945). Those are army- rather than SS ranks and the year of death does not match either, so none of them was your relative.

    Still, it was worth a try.
