I am trying to locate if there are any lists for people living in the DP camps from 1945-1951 and where I can find them

Thank you

Hello Israel,

Files on the DP camps are kept in the Salzburg State Archives (https://www.salzburg.gv.at/archive).
I myself did research in the files of the DP Camp Parsch. 
Unfortunately, there is no file index for the mentioned stock and the archive boxes are only roughly labelled with keywords or file numbers, which is why even after the boxes in question have been narrowed down, a large number of possibly relevant contents (estimated at about 70 boxes) still remains. In addition to general camp reports, the inventory also includes medical reports, emigrant's files and personal applications for camp supplies.

Kind regards,
Johann Hammer

Hi Israel,

The Arolsen Archives records have many DP records.  Check their website arolsen-archives.org to see what they have put online already.  Ancestry.com has indexing some of their postwar lists as well.  If what you need is not online, you can submit a search request with them, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum or Yad Vashem.

The Joint Distribution Committee archives has digitized their DP camp records, https://archives.jdc.org/

USHMM has the Unite Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) Austria mission records but the finding aid is not clear if there a lists of names for Salzburg.

Johann, if one cannot travel there, how does one contact these archives to get information? I am talking about living survivors who were there?

Hi Israel,
I reply from Paris.
Numerous posts have given the best answer when searching Displaced Persons : you must fill a inquiry on Arolsen web site :
https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/inquiries/submit-inquiry/
They reply always, but delay could be 2 or 3 months.
