Missing Hungarian WWII Soldier Finally identified and will return home

Agner Gyula

The body of a Hungarian soldier who died during World War II was successfully identified in Ukraine. Gyula Ágner was highly awarded during the war. His remains will be brought back to Hungary, to give him a proper burial, according to Roland Maruzs, who is the Head of the Social Relations and the Department of War Tribute. Even though Gyula Ágner’s dog tag was never found, his remains could be identified by comparing the samples of his niece’s DNA.

Gyula Ágner, born on May 31, 1914, was a Lieutenant with the 13th Mountain Rifle Battalion and died somewhere in Ukraine on 27 April 1944 and was buried in Luczky.
