DP Camps Press

There were hundreds of camps for so-called displaced persons (DPs) – across occupied Germany but mostly in the British and American Zones. The camps became a temporary home for Jewish survivors, with their own administration, schools, and even a football league. The last camp closed in 1957.

Initially many camps had their own newsletter, with time, and as the many camps were consolidated, the newsletters of the larger camps, such as Unzer SztymeOur Voice published in Bergen-Belsen took over.

In addition to our own collection we also hold a copy of the YIVO Jewish Displaced Persons Periodicals Collection on microfilm.
