12/9/04 Dear Olga,
Can you advice me where to find records about my parents? They stayed in American Army refugee camps after sec. world war. I know for sure they were in Wetzlar (near Frankfurt am Main) on Sept / Oct 1948. I'm looking for their marriage certificate or any other document about them like a copy of their passports or their identity cards. They came after the Holocaust to Germany from Poland and Russia. Their names are: Avram Ledershtein & Mania Ledershtein (Finkelshtein). Anaish

We have contact few years ago about Maczkow DPs Polish city in Germany.

Here are photos of the UNRRA team in Wetzlar in Germany if it can help someone who search’s info’s about it. I make already a blog about Polish troops and the great father, http://zygmunt-sawicki.blog4ever.com
and about UNRRA teams,
Regards and thanks G.Lapers gilles.lapers@skynet.be
