Hersbruck Displaced Persons Camp

« Back to Projects Dashboard

The purpose of this project is to keep track of all of the profiles of the displaced persons or Holocaust Survivors who were residents of the Hersbruck Displaced Persons Camp. This camp was located in Hersbruck, Germany.

During the Nazi Regime, Hersbruck was a subsidiary camp of Flossenbürg concentration camp. The camp had about 10,000 prisoners, about 4,000 of them died in Hersbruck.

After World War II, that camp, on the outskirts of town, was converted for housing Latvian Displaced Persons and renamed as Camp Kathann. It was first operated by United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration and later by International Refugee Organization.
