Default Searching for relative

This is my first time on this site so I hope I am doing this correctly. I would like to find some information on a Luftwaffa Captain who was in the Rotenburg on Der Wumme near Bremen in 1945. I only know his name as Willie Rauscher, can any one help me to know where or how to search.
Thank you from Australia

Sheila,

He was in the Luftwaffe.
The Luftnachrichten was a part of the Luftwaffe.
