    Seeking records whether families of German POWs were contacted

    Sandra Friend Newbie

      I am trying to discern whether the families of German soldiers who surrendered to American troops in WWII would have been given a heads-up in a formal letter, like US families had via the Red Cross so they could communicate with loved ones being held in POW camps. Would the death of a German Army POW while under US Army care have been communicated to the POW's family?
