I have seen many post-WW11 refugee passenger manifests where the refugees are listed as stateless.

Perhaps someone else with in depth knowledge of the stateless issue can post here.

Also, I was thinking that if Ladislav's father naturalized in The U.S. while Ladislav was of minor age than Ladislav would have become a U.S. citizen, even if living outside of The U.S.

But, that would not explain his statelessness.

Have you found Ladislav's father's naturalization papers?  You may be able to find them at

Good luck in your search,
