With the end of World War II, millions of people found themselves on the run. They were all called Displaced Persons, or DPS for short. Some 70,000 Jewish survivors who had been liberated from concentration and labor camps, as well as those fleeing anti-Semitic pogroms in Eastern Europe in the immediate postwar period, were drawn to Munich. The city temporarily became the most important transit and holding station for the Jewish DPs. In a very short time, a local infrastructure was established that enabled the survivors to start their lives anew.
In the tour you will learn more about the living conditions of the Jewish DPs and their most important points of contact in Munich.
