While probably not captured from a serviceman of the Third Reich, you can bet it was certainly liberated from a Third Reich home. Firearms were confiscated from German civilians immediately after the war, due to concerns about die-hard fanatics and Werewolf guerrilla war in the mountains. A very low-grade warfare continued until 1946 in isolated areas, but the Germans thankfully accepted defeat for the most part, they were pretty much destroyed as a nation by 1945.

I'd call your Luger a good wartime souvenir that should stay in the family, if that's what you want to do.
