From what I understand, getting information from the UKRAINE is difficult at best. I don't even know where to start.
My grandfather was killed by a sniper bullet. His body was never returned to my grandmother for burial and they wouldn't allow her to claim his body or see it. She was never given any sort of compensation by the Army or anyone. So she was left a young widow with 2 small boys to raise. Her youngest child a girl, Diane, died just a couple of months before John was killed.
After losing her husband, a few months later she lost her home to the German Army. They decided they wanted to use the house and told her and my great-grandparents they had to leave. To this day, we do not know what ever happened to the house. It is something I would love to try and find out one day.
