German SIG #Germany Fwd: Aglasterhausen Children's Home, Germany #germany

Alex Magocsi

Recently my "Uncle Joe" passed away.
He was a survivor of Auschwitz and was a resident of the above referenced Home.

This home was also known as:
The Aglasterhausen Home for Orphaned and Unaccompanied Children
and was in operation as a displaced persons' (DP) camp >from early
1946 to late 1948.

As a way to remember Uncle Joe, I decided to research Aglasterhausen
and stumbled upon two photographs at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum
of some of the "children" >from the home and, as a nice surprise,
Uncle Joe is shown in one. The two photographs were donated by a
private person.

I have searched the internet quite a bit in my search for information,
especially photos, regarding this Children's Home, searching both the
USHMM and the digital collections of the International Tracing Service
(ITS Arolsen).

I am writing today to see if any of the readers of this list have any
photographs >from the referenced Children's Home.

I suspect that there are photographs in private hands and I suspect
there are others who may be interested in seeing such photos.

Thank you, Alex Magocsi, Hamburg Germany awmjr@...
