I am trying to locate rosters of German POWs stockaded in the area of St. Avold, France during post WWII, approx. 1945-1947. The POWs were assigned to work (digging graves & such) at what was to become the Lorraine American cemetery. It is my understanding that the POWs, perhaps originally captured by the Allied Forces, were transferred to be solely under French Government authority. Is there a list /roster of German POWs held in France.....don't need the list of POWs held in U.S. territory stockades.
Dear Ms. Garcia,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Since the camp was under French authority, we suggest you contact the Directeur des Archives de France, 60 rue des Francs-Bourgeois, 75141 Paris, France. The web site is https://www.archivesnationales.culture.gouv.fr/.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
