Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The F hrenwald DP camp was one of the largest in post-World War II Europe and the last to close (in 1957). It was located in the section now known as Waldram in Wolfratshausen in Bavaria, Germany.The camp facilities were originally built by Nazi authorities in 1939 to house construction workers of the IG Farben concern, then was populated by slave laborers during the war. In June 1945, the camp was appropriated by the US Army administration of postwar Germany's American sector, for the purpose of housing international refugees. The camp's initial population comprised refugees of Jewish, Yugoslavian, Hungarian, and Baltic origin. On October 3, 1945, General Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered that F hrenwald be made an exclusively Jewish DP camp, after he had found living conditions at the Feldafing camp unacceptable.show more
