Help in Locating unit of German Veteran

Post by [email protected] » Fri Oct 19, 2018 2:53 pm

Request help/suggestions in finding unit of German Veteran.... Following facts apply:

Name- LUDOLPH, LOUIS [LUIZ] LUDWIG
Born 14September1920 Vicosa, Brazil

Family from Germany, subject in Germany in late 1930s going to University... unknown which, but likely in Bad Kreuznach area.

Entered Military, family stories placed him as a sidecar motorcycle driver perhaps in an SS unit.

Facts-He was an enlisted soldier, he was captured on the Eastern Front by Russian forces, he was a POW in Russia working in a lead mine, he was released in 1954/55 in poor health, he returned to his family [Wife, child] in Bad Kreuznach.

Said to have died in the 1980's in Bad Kreuznach. Surviving family has little information

Any suggestions appreciated.... Best
