My grandmother confessed a while ago that the love of her life was a German soldier during WWII, and that my father was his son. So, my grandfather appears to be a gentle, German guy from Leipzig and not a silent man from Belgium.
This is what I know. His name, according to my 99 year old grandmother was Heinz Gerard Höltz, adress: Auenhainer strasse 10 in Leipzig Süd. Born the 16th june 1920.
But it could well be Holz of Hölz, or born in 26/06/1922. She is confused.
I'm trying to find data about this man and his family, but got not much further then an online address book: a guy named Hermann Holz, Schmiedemstr at that adress in 1949. I suppose this is his father or brother. He had 5 brothers and 4 sisters again according to my grandmother. Heinz himself is most likely killed in action somewhere in 1944 in the neighbourhood of Maldegem or Eeklo in Belgium. But I can't find any records of this.
So, I'm stuck for the moment. Can anyone help me find some more details about my grandfather? Thank you so very much
