The GRC Tracing Service has been dealing with the consequences of the Second World War, the “Iron Curtain” and the former division of Germany for decades. Even 75 years after the end of the Second World War, many thousands of people still submit requests every year to search for and clarify the fate of war-missing relatives.
The Central Name Index with about 50 million (digitized) index cards provides information on the fate of more than 20 million people who went missing in Germany during the Second World War and its aftermath. In many cases, only now does newly acquired information from the archives of the successor states of the former USSR bring certainty to relatives.
Perhaps the GRC Tracing Service can also answer your tracing request for a missing Wehrmacht soldieror displaced civilian from your family.
