      I got a response from the Berlin City government Although they did not provide a precise location of the grave, this is a definite step forward!
      I feel like I am finally closing in...

        So, a statistic recovers its human face.

          I suppose the history of a given battalion can be traced only through arhcival records...

            Does this mean that I should go to TSAMO and sift through the records? Or maybe there is a way to send a request?
            thx

              thx
              There are the next problems
              a) Foreingers are not allowed to visit TsAMO
              b) It's useless to send any request to them. they have no opportunities even to fulfill requests from Russia. Requests from abroad they will ignore with high probability.

              c) It's possible to use assistance of a researcher (my friend is one of those). But his assistance is VERY expensive...
