Feffernitz bei Feistritz Lager (Weissenstein) - (British zone) Hungarians
6/1/07 Dear Olga,
Thank you for you work on maintaining the DP Camp website. I was extremely excited to find it.
I would like to provide you information on a DP camp my father's family lived in 1945-1947. My father's family DP Identification lists it as: "Autrich, Feffernitz bei Feistritz Lager". He always referred to it as Feffernitz (Weissenstein). It was close to Graz in the British zone. I have enclosed a picture of the main entrance to the camp. The camp residents were exclusively Hungarians.
I have a variety of documents from his stay there and a videotape discussing his war and post-war experience. He wrote a novel during his stay that is set in the camp and is about a Boy Scout troop.
I am currently trying to write a book about my parent lives, and have the first draft of the chapter about his stay in this camp. If anyone has any information they could share with me about this camp, I would greatly appreciate an email. Thank you for your assistance,
Kitty Zoltai Gogins firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear Olga !
When I tried to learn more about the DP camps in Austria (especially in Styria), I found your great Website, where I saw the pictures of John and Miff. So, my question is, if you own pictures (or information in general) about the camps in "Admont" and "Frauenberg", both in Styria (British occupation zone) or if you know somebody, who lived in one of these camps?
The location of Frauenberg is not known exactly by me (there are more than one village with the name), but I think it is the camp near Admont, that was a former Nazi "labour education camp" (capacity: 200 persons). There exist eye witnesses of the usage for refugees.
Different Frauenberg villages in Styria are near Kapfenberg and Leibnitz (maybe a name conflict ?).
Tony Bodo (email@example.com ), a former inhabitant of several Austrian DP camps posted some information, for example under: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/croatiangenealogical/message/60 . Many thanks, Klaus Fohringer

Dear Ms. Kaczmar:
In my book, Resistance, Imprisonment, & Forced Labor: A Slovene Student in World War II (Peter Lang Publishers, 2002 and 2003) I describe in the last chapter (Chapter 15) the life in the DP camp Studentenlager Hochsteingasse 37 in Graz, Austria. I thought that you may be interested in reading my account of the life there from its beginning to my departure in July 1950. The book I mention covers my war years and a few years before that. Not much is in the literature about the DP camps, your information is very useful. With regards, Metod M. Milac firstname.lastname@example.org; Fax: 347-521-6303

Francis 'Jan' Lengyl (Lendyl?) was a Hungarian refugee in Graz and possibly had a sister called Ruth. Please let me know where I can find details of people who were held in these camps 1946 -50. My mother Octavia Buchta (Austrian) lived near these camps and said she worked alongside Jan and his sister in a garment factory. They then came to England where Jan went on as a refugee to USA possibly posing as an Austrian to start a new life. He is my father and I would like to contact him if at all possible.
Thank you. God Bless.
