10/6/04 Dear Olga,
I'm looking for news about DP CAMP in Barletta (Bari) during Second World War. Can you help me? thank you Angelo Torre
11/3/04 Hello Olga,
My parents and grandparents weren't in a DP camp in Judenburg. They were actually living with farmers whose sons were fighting the war for the Nazis. It is fascinating, however, to know that there were DP camps there. When my parents were "freed" from Judenburg in 1945 they were taken to Italy, eventually ending up in a DP camp in Barletta. My father enlisted in the Polish army under British command (Anders army), while my mother and her family lived in the DP camp. We have photos from that period. My parents were married in Barletta in 1945 and I was born in Trani in an army hospital in 1946. My grandfather was the head representative for the camp. His name was Stanislaw Czurylo. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to find your website. Thank you so much for suggesting the Austrian Archives. I will let you know what I find out. I am researching my family's WW II history with the objective of writing a book. Jane Hikel Coordinator, Writing Center, English Department, Central Connecticut State University
We stayed at that DP Camp for a short time, and then boarded the US NS GENERAL M.B. STEWART, from Bremenhaven, Germany, on Dec. 20th 1951, and arrived in N.Y., N.Y. on Jan. 2, 1952, The escort Officer was Lt. Crl. (Ret) A. Duncan Johnstone, MBE. ED....is there anyway to find out the name of the German DP Camp? I have the entire ship manifest of all the passengers (all DP's) my family is listed as "stateless", any info you can help me with would be appreciated. Thank you Anna Lewis Soldotna, Alaska

Sept 27, 2012 Dear Olga,
I have returned to your website again and again & my gratitude to you for all your effort. The attached photos are from a DP camp in Florence, Italy. The DP camp was called "Kibbutz Ha'Oved." The residents all Jewish Holocaust survivors so far as I know; among them my parents, who were among the Holocaust survivors from the eastern side of Poland, some times referred to as "she'e'ray ha'playtah (the remnant).
In all my years of research have never succeeded in locating anyone who is familiar with this DP camp(s) in Florence.
So far I have been able to determine that my parents arrived in Italy c. January, 1946. Still haven't been able to determine what route, how they got there, fleeing Ukraine.
1) Women who gave birth while at Kibbutz Ha'oved; woman standing at the far right is my mother, Leah Zakusky
2) My father, Pinchas Zakusky, 6th person on left from foreground 3) Moshe Zakusky, born in Florence 3/23/46 (my brother) 4) Chanukah party, residents Kibbutz Ha'oved (unidentified), December 17 Florence
My parents' address while in this DP camp was "Delasem, via Lamamorra #36, Firenze". Their names were Leah and Pinchas Zaksusky (later - Zaks). DELASEM means "Delegation for Assistance to Hebrew Emigres" Thank you so much!!

Months ago I asked you for help in finding relatives of my parents Mykola Jemeljanenko and Weronika Alpina and I am very grateful to you for your advice. I have finally received information from the archives that you suggested. They were Ukrainian but living in Poland before WW2. My father lived in Maciejew and my mother in Lipno. During the war they were sent to Germany. My father was sent to Duisburg in 1943 then Nordhurn in 1945 then in 1946 to Bathurn Lingen DP Camp until 1948. My mother was in Datel Recklinghausen then Haltern, Muenster DP camps then worked at 18DPACS in Muenchen-Gladbach until 1948. I would appreciate it if you could give more information on those places. They migrated to Australia separately in 1950, My mother from Naples in Italy my father from Bremen, Germany so there is 2 years that they do not account for. Could you please place this on your web site again please Olga? Thank you in anticipation. Yours Sincerely, Anna McClure nee Jameljanenko. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. / Australia
2/25/05 Dear Olga,
I am currently researching my family history, but l am not having much luck and have just struck your fantastic website. My wife's grandparents were born in Poland and during WW2 ended up in concentration camps, l do know that they went to Naples, Italy and boarded a ship for Australia known as the USAT "Gen.C.C.Ballou" and that the port of Disembarkation was Sydney on the 29 April 1949, and that their intended address in N.S.W was to be Bathurst. Could you please help me find some more information on this couple as we would really like to know what concentration camps they were in during the war, and where they were when they first came to Australia.

"...the Germans took occupancy from 1940 to 1943. As the fortunes of war changed, so did the residents, and the Allied Armies used the facilities from 1943 to 1945. After the war, from 1945, the post was used by various refugee organizations to house displaced persons until 1952 when it was returned to the Foundation Bank of Naples. CINCSOUTH's Headquarters moved into the post in 1953." http://www.afsouth.nato.int/releases/1999releases.htm
Nov 27, 2013 Hello Olga,
I found your very valuable site dpcamps and I am searching any information about my grandfather Danilo Jaksic. He was in Italy in Eboli or Naples Camp 1944-1946. He's name is Danilo Jaksic, he is Serbian and is in 1903. (Javor, Serbia) born.
I tried to contact Archives Napoli (Naples) and Red Cross Eboli in Italy but they speak fairly English. Do you have any person or email-address from Naples or Eboli archives that I can communicate with. Thank you very much!
