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

History of the camp

From August 1944 to April 1945, a satellite camp of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp was in operation at Unterlüß-Altensothrieth. Guarded by SS staff, around 600 female prisoners were forced to clear forest, do building work or to work at the Rheinmetall munitions works.
