    Need NARA location of 1950s EUCOM/CIA/BND Interrogations of Wehrmacht Officers Returned From Soviet Captivity

    David Klaus Newbie

      Looking for the NARA (probably) location of a debriefing/interrogation report of a Luftwaffe general released by the Soviets in 1955.  These debriefings/interrogations were conducted by EUCOM/CIA/BND of all senior Wehrmacht officers and intel officers released by the Soviets. Have checked NARA online search tool and closest I can come is RG 263 (CIA records), but this doesn't seem right.

       

      A friend saw these records at Suitland back in the '80s but can't recall the RG.  Anybody know RG and file group? 

       

      TIA.

          The best way to find this out is to join the axis history forum and post a question there. They are the most knowledgeable group of people out there, among the groups of people who are actually willing to respond, that is. Here is the link: https://forum.axishistory.com/

           

          I've posted many questions there in the course of writing a novel, and everyone has been most helpful. It seems to be all men. If you needed to know what time a certain train arrived in Riga on November 12, 1943, someone at this forum would know the answer, and they would know how many cars were in that train. They are an incredible bunch. They have pointed me to resources that others swore were "unavailable".

            Dear Mr. Klaus,

            Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!

            Various interrogation files are in the custody of the National Archives. Concentrating on what may have been in Suitland during the 1980s, we searched the EUCOM and  U.S. Army, Europe (USAREUR) records (EUCOM became USAREUR in 1952). Very few of the POW interrogations were dated as late as 1955 except for the POW debriefings that were incorporated into the Foreign Military Studies. There are G-2 records that also contain some POW debriefings for that time period. If you provide us with the name of the Luftwaffe General you are interested in, we may be able to locate what you seek.

            We hope that this information is helpful and look forward to your reply.
