A SHORT HISTORY
JUNKERS CAMP, BETTENHAUSEN, KASSEL.
Junkers Camp in Bettenhausen, a suburb on the southeastern
edge of Kassel, is probably the best Baltic Displaced Persons Camp
in the American Zone of Germany. It consists of twenty-two one-storey
stuccoed barracks, a very large one-storey wooden structure
used as garage, for workshops, wood storage, sports, meetings and
movies, a hospital and a kitchen building, as well as two dwelling
houses outside the camp area, one of which is used as an elementary
and high school and the other as billets for the UNRRA team operating
A plan of the camp is enclosed. The following photos,
together with the plan, gives a fair idea of the physical aspect
of the camp.
