The collection of CM/1 applications filled out in Italy includes some green forms from the period in which the PCIRO was responsible for the Care and Maintenance program. The first 19 questions on these forms correspond to other CM/1 applications, but the last questions place more emphasis on the applicants’ decision. Instead of a blank space for remarks, this form asks why the applicants had left their homeland, why they did not want to return, which type of support they were requesting and which steps they wanted to take in the near future. This green form therefore resembles the CM/1 applications used in the British and French occupation zones.

Questions and answers

  • What are considered variations in the e-Guide?

    The e-Guide distinguishes between main cards and variations. The reason for this is that there are sometimes different versions of a single type of document that can vary significantly.

    The documents referred to as main cards in the e-Guide are standard documents that were used especially frequently in concentration camps, DP camps, and for the registration of forced laborers, and about which a good deal of information is available. The Arolsen Archives also hold variations of these documents, however, which served the exact same purpose as the corresponding main cards, but which look different. There are various reasons for this: Some camps used their own individually produced cards instead of the standard versions. In many other cases, individual cards and forms were used before the introduction of standardized pre-printed forms.
