At the end of WWII, the Allies housed most surviving Jews found in
Europe in what they called Displaced Person (DP) Camps. Many of these
camps were linked to or used the same Concentration Camp facilities
the Germans had developed for the Jews during WWII.

Your relative may have been employed as a translator / nurse / social
worker at the Bergen-Belsen DP Camp. Perhaps this is the way he chose
to go back "home" to search for his lost relatives. See
