Dear Mr. Unschuld,
We located some additional information that may be helpful for your research. The series Moving Images Relating to Military Activities, 1947 - 1964 in Record Group 111 contains two files related to Eifel that might be of interest to you. These records have been digitized and can be viewed online in the Catalog, and you may contact the National Archives at College Park - Motion Pictures (RDSM) at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you might have about them.
The series Translations of German Amerikaner Vorgaenge (AV) Reports, 9/1944-2/1945 in the National Archives Collection of Foreign Records Seized (Record Group 242) also contains 25 references to Eifel that may be relevant to your research. These records have been digitized and can be viewed online in the Catalog. In addition, the series Reports, Interrogations, and Other Records Received from Various Allied Military Agencies, 1945-1947 in the National Archives Collection of World War II War Crimes Records (Record Group 238) includes 3 references to Eifel, too. Most of these records have been digitized and can also be viewed via the Catalog. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at email@example.com for assistance with these and similar records.
You can also use the “Advanced Search” feature of the National Archives Catalog to search within a record group. The Records of the Office of the Provost Marshal General (Record Group 389), for example, contain a number of records related to prisoners of war. You may also wish to explore records created by different offices within an organization, like the Provost Marshal General’s Prisoner of War Operations Division. Most of these records will not have been digitized. You may contact RDT2 for additional assistance with them. In your inquiry, please include as much information as possible about the names of the camps, specific locations, and dates you are interested in.
Finally, since the region you are interested in was primarily under British and French control after the war, you may wish to contact the National Archives (UK) and the Archives nationales (France) to see if they can offer you any further information.
Again, we hope this information is helpful, and best of luck with your ongoing research!
