As I stated in another post, where should I look for the interrogations of my grandfather? He was captured 26th march 1945 in Germersheim by the Americans.

You should get his military records (or kopies of it) at the WASt Dienststelle Berlin. Now a part of the Bundesarchiv, they can help you out with the information.

Well... since I am invited to do a few lectures on that same island coming May... I will ask some serious questions then!
