Dear Mr. Zheleznov,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 3 series, 44 file units, and 19 items in various record groups that relate to Soviet prisoners of war. Please note that some of the records have been digitized and may be viewed using the Catalog. For more information about non-digitized records, please contact the unit listed in the description.
Since your grandfather was a prisoner at Dachau concentration camp, we would suggest reviewing records located in the series Concentration Camp Dachau Entry Registers, 1945-1945 in the National Archives Collection of World War II War Crimes Records (Record Group 238). Please note that records in this series have been microfilmed as Microfilm Publication M1938 and subsequently digitized. Digital images of the records may be viewed and downloaded using the Catalog. Further, we would suggest reviewing records located in the series titled Lists and Registers of German Concentration Camp Inmates, 1946-1958 (Microfilm Publication A3355) in the National Archives Collection of Foreign Records Seized (Record Group 242). Records in this series have also been digitized and are available via the Catalog.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from various NARA reference units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Lastly, we would recommend looking into work of the U.S.-Russia Joint Commission on POW/MIAs. This Commission was established in 1992 by the U.S. President George H.W. Bush and Russia President Boris Yeltsin to determine the fates of Americans and Russians from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Cold War. For more information on the Commission, please see resources available on the website of the Library of Congress here and here.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
