Document grouping to Obergefreiter Heinrich Uffeln from Wuppertal, a Panzer musician who last served with Panzer-Regiment 23 of the 23. Panzer-Division when he got missing in the area of Kriwoj Rog, February 1944. The included DRK papers assume that he went into Russian captivity, but then disappeared. The Reichsmusikkammer Ausweis confirms he was a entertainment musician and violinist.
