Thanks Olga, for helping archive info about DP camps and life.
I was born in Hannover and lived with parents and other relatives in the Schulenburg camp, outside of Hannover. My family was there for about seven years; we emigrated in 1952 to US. I asked my Dad and he says it's: Schulenburg--not Schulenburger; and he did not work in any factories during his stay; from 1949 to 1951. He remembers it as a small camp of a few or couple hundred people. It was former German-soldier training camp with barracks and bunkers. Here are my photos from camp.
Thanks, again, Vera Otasevic Scroggins veraduerga@yahoo.com

Mother and some other relatives full Italians married Serbian ex-soldiers. They hid their Italian backgrounds to some degree and took Serbian last names to stay in camp; afraid they would have to leave since it was full of Baltic, eastern people.

My grandfather is Branko Sretenovic; Godfather is Randjel Stojanovic; and they all had families and wives there.
