Dying people from Auschwitz

3 juni 1945

The Allied policy was to repatriate the millions of displaced persons as quickly as possible from Germany. This meant that centers became clogged from time to time. Returnees from the American zone arrived primarily in Maastricht, which took care of a third of all returnees.
