Solving the Mystery: Tracing Your Family’s Path from a Displaced Persons Camp

October 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

free

If you have family members who immigrated to Greater Cleveland from Europe after World War II, chances are they came from a Displaced Persons Camp. These were temporary settlements that housed millions of war refugees, yet it’s a story that has been largely hidden from the descendants. There was no easy way to trace people back to life in the DP camps–until now.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, working with the Ukrainian Museum Archives in Cleveland, has built an online resource of information on the Displaced Persons Camps. It has also developed tools to search the new database, so that people can find family members. Museum officials plan to present the search tools to ethnic communities nationwide, starting in Cleveland October 24.
