        I guess this can be useful to relatives that don't know what happened to their loved ones?

          Yes, I use this database. Moreover, I had contacts with people involved in this project. It's thought just to help relatives to find their missed members of families. For example I found a relative of my (girl)friend there.

            Wow, that site is great! A few month ago I stumbled across a translated diary of a Red Army soldier, Nikolai Petrovich Lobov, in the German records at NARA. It looks like he died in the Vitebsk area in the Spring of 1942. I searched his name & got a probable hit. You can click on the name & see the original document. Very cool.

                In Germany an agency exists that is dedicated to provide information on dead or missing soldiers:

                Deutsche Dienststelle (WASt) for the notification of next-of-kin of members of the former German Wehrmacht who were killed in action.

                You can write them asking for the fate of a loved one, then they will answer and provide all details that can be found in the Wehrmacht records.
