Records Relating to Displaced Person Camps: Pub... | Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust
This record group comprises several postwar collections related to the DP camp activities. The following collections include documents regarding the DP camps and related to its members, the postwar civil judicial proceedings; Bricha (Operation Flight or Escape to Palestine) publication; Perla Karney collection of photographs; Sylvia Lowe collection of post-liberation documents; and the collection of publications printed by the DP camps’ communal and societal organizations.
The collection of publications includes various printed materials published in and outside the displaced persons camps in Germany and Austria. Largely, the language of publications is Yiddish. The DP camps’ committees published them periodically. Overall, these publications focus on contemporary events and on prospective life in Palestine. Most of these materials are original publications. Another rubric covered by the DP’s publications relates to the social and cultural life of Holocaust survivors while in DP camps.
