    The is the simple answer to your question.
    Date of Birth: 9th February, 1915
    Date of Death: 21st July, 1971

    Tracing his ancestry was however, complicated and far from simple.
    I provide the documents I have found, but verification by the forum's experts may be needed.

    Firstly, there are two people born to the same mother, at the same time, but they are not twins.

    The circumstances are very strange, but they appear to be the same man to me. I'll leave it to you to decide.
