    Seeking evidence of uncle's story

    Roger Pike Newbie

      My Uncle tells a story of his life in Holland before coming to America.  That at age 17, he was born in 1926 so that should put it in 1943, that he was taken into the German Army and at the end of basic training, he contracted scarlet fever and was allowed to return back home to Amsterdam for a short leave before the unit was scheduled to go to the Russian front.  During this time he joined the Dutch underground and never returned,  The unit was completely destroyed at the front. While I have no doubt of the story, is there any records that survived that would match up to his story? Any suggestions?
