Karl Kumm

Died or MIA: 28 June 1942

I think he was a corporal? I'd love to know where he died, what unit he was in etc. Any information would be amazing! How do I find this stuff out?

Contact Bundesarchiv and see if you can get a copy of his service history. It might take a few weeks or months for them to reply:
