City archives in Salzburg:

Saw your website while trying to find out more information regarding a DP camp in Salzburg, Austria. Towards the end of the war, my grandparents and their three children (one being my father) went from Prague back to Bratislava where they lived. They eventually had to leave, we believe, because of the Benes Decrees and wound up in the Lexenfeld DP camp. My one aunt recalls that the camp was located just outside of Salzburg, but was within walking distance to town. She also recalls it was basically farm land, but was on the grounds of a Convent and that there was a church also on the grounds. Hope this information helps. Joseph L. Zollner

8/2/07 Hi Olga,
My mother, Natalie Kulish, from the Ukraine, resided in the Lexenfeld Camp for several years during WWII then performed/entertained, in a theater called Rainbow Theater or Playhouse for another few years. She then immigrated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Is there any web-sites that you know that we can visit for more information about the camp, survivors, photos, etc. If anyone know more about this camp, I look forward to hearing from you. Email me at:, Best regards, R.P. (Bobbi) Mackellar, Mississauga ON Canada

1/3/05 Hello,
I am requesting any information you may have on Camp Murdorff which was located in Judenburg. My mother was born there in 1947, and I am trying to find out all I can about the camp and what her life was like before coming to the US at 4 years of age. I am also trying to track down any of the existing family members. The only thing I have is that her birth mother's name was Lydia Tkaczowa, and she was born in a small town in what is now the western part of Ukraine. Any information you could give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Marla Pavlowski / USA
