You are quite correct!
My family was originally sent to work on a large farm at Neunmunster.
Dad was later thrown into Neungamme because he got into some trouble there, partly for waving at an allied plane that was probably looking for targets in the area (near Hamburg).
At Neungamme he was put into various "kommando" groups that included salvage work in the city from bombing damage.

His MOD records state that he was in forced labour in Germany between 1943 and 1945 and completed a year of secondary education in Murnau during 1945-1946 before somehow ending up as part of the Polish 2nd corp in Italy after the war, before coming to the UK.

search? Would local archives in Germany have them, or would they have been taken by the armies under control in the regions after the war? I would really like to find records of the camp at Murnau to see if there is any info recorded about my father e.g. where exactly he was during his forced labour. Ã‚
