Frauenberg Displaced Persons' Camp

Austria by Klaus Fohringer / Austria

Frauenberg facts:

The location of Frauenberg is not known exactly by me (there are more than one village with the name), but I think it is the camp near Admont, that was a former Nazi "labour education camp" (capacity: 200 persons). There exist eye witnesses of the usage for refugees.

Different Frauenberg villages: one in Styria (See Admont for archives) are near Kapfenberg and another in Leibnitz (See Leibnitz for achives).
