My grandfather, Laszlo LANG, was one of the many labor servicemen drafted
into the Hungarian army in the early 40s. My father's family recieved
notification when he was killed, apparently mine sweeping on the soviet
front. My questions are, does the Hungarian military retain records of
these individuals? Has anyone on the group had success in obtaining
these records? Where would I write to obtain them? and, finally would the
letter have to be translated into Hungarian?
Thanks for any help.
