My grandfather, Orville C. Yahn - First Infantry Div., was also captured in Tunisia in Feb 1943 - at the Battle of Kasserine Pass and was held in Stalag 3b in Furstenberg for the majority of his 26 months as a POW (the final months were at Stalag 7a in Moosberg). He was freed in March of 1945 and taken to the Elbe River to meet other American soldiers. He was from Ellwood City, PA and passed away in 2005.

Below are a couple of links to an article written about him recently. He also wrote a short auto-biography that I will have to see if I can find a digital copy of as he names quite a few others he was imprisoned with and spoke about their experiences.
