Re: German Jews who served the Third Reich #germany #general

What about those individuals of partial Jewish heritage who were involuntarily conscripted to serve in the German military during World War 2? This was the case with my father’s first cousin. My father’s aunt, Elfrieda (ne Koenigsberger), who was Jewish, married a non-Jew who was a prominent lawyer and the family remained in Aachen, Germany during the war. The Lemke’s had two sons and the older one, Klaus, was forced into the military toward the end of the war. He was an ardent opponent of the Nazi regime. Klaus was sent to the Eastern Front to fight against approaching Soviet troops and was never heard from again.
