Dear Mr. Müller,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The personnel records of World War II German Prisoners of War (POWs) were returned to Germany and as you already know, can be accessed through the Deutsche Dienststelle (WASt). There are a few series of records that contain some records relating to German POWs. Descriptions of the records can be accessed in the National Archives Catalog here.
The National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) has custody of the Records of the Office of the Provost Marshal General (Record Group 389). Enemy POW files among these records consist mostly of camp inspection reports, camp labor reports, camp historical files, detention rosters, POW grave location reports, and Italian service unit reports. Because the files are arranged by type of report or file and thereunder by the name of the camp, identification of the specific POW camp is necessary before a search can be conducted. There is no listing by state and the records include minimal information about individual POWs.
Please contact RDT2 via email at archives2reference@nara gov with any questions you may have. When writing an inquiry to RDT2, please make sure to include your father’s first and last name, his date of birth and place of birth.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
