Re: Where can I find the birth certificate of someone who was born in a DP camp (Benzheim)? #holocaust #records

In the case I investigated, a child who was born while the parents were living in Föhrenwald DP in Wolfratshausen, (West) Germany, the mother actually traveled to Munich to give birth, and the birth was registered there, in the regular civil register, and cross-registered in Wolfratshausen. I would check the municipal register in the town where the camp was located, and/or the nearest city with a hospital.
