Reply to both Judy in Colorado and Tom in Melbourne:


Actually my goal was to find another source of data regarding the specific Forced Labor Company so that I could cross check where the said company worked. At the time of its existence, the company worked in the Kingdom of Hungary (refer to https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1f/Hungary_1941-44_Administrative_Map.png ), in what is now Ukraine. So I was bouncing between the referenced map and a modern google map of Ukraine and wanted to be as accurate as possible in naming the places. I’m all set with that aspect.


A year ago I did receive some good documentation from Arolsen Archives regarding a survivor of the referenced Labor Company. And based on this data I worked with the survivor’s son and he dug up more information in his late Father’s papers. I suspect that is all we will find unless there are other descendants of survivors who also have documents.

So it was primarily the fact that I knew a name that opened the door to the documents.


It is my understanding that the Hungarian officials destroyed the records of the various Labor Companies.
