With regards to "befr. Kauf" - as one of the volunteer transcribers, I've
also seen "befr. Kaufering", where I believe "Kaufering" identifies a place - a satellite camp or site of forced labor. "Kauf" is probably an
abbreviation for "Kaufering". Every entry I've seen so far beginning with "befr.", which means "liberated" is succeeded by a place name or
abbreviation for a place name. It means that the individual in question
survived until the liberation of his/her place of imprisonment.

If someone was released >from Dachau at any time prior to the liberation, the terminology used was "entl." for "entlassen" = released, followed by a date.
