    Seeking information about German soldiers held as POWs in Russia

    Chris Lyon Newbie

      Hi, I'm attempting to do research for a close friend whose Great Grandfather was held as a POW during WWII.  We are in possession of his "Release Document" giving him permission to return to his home town (in itself a fascinating document to hold as it's in both Russian and German). The gentleman in question has recently passed away and during his life after the war, spoke very little about his experiences.  So really, apart from this document and his birth certificate, we really are working with a fairly blank canvas. Here's hoping that out there someone may have just one clue to help us in our quest. Many thanks from this 76 year old, 38-year Royal Air Force veteran.  Stay safe.
