You can ask them via e-mail. They are able to tell you where the files concerning a person are held.
Some are in the state archives of the region where the person lived or submittel claims. Some are still stored with the authorities.
In Berlin you can search a database of the Berlin states archives. 
http://www.wga-datenbank.de/search.php?s=1. 
But they have only the files for lost propertiy restitution  claims. The other files are still held at the

Entschädigungsbehörde des Landes Berlin https://www.berlin.de/labo/entschaedigung-ns-unrecht. 


Normally the files can be accessed thirty years after death of the person. Sometimes they whant a formless declaration about being related.

Kind regards
