Addresses in the USA or other countries to which the DPs had emigrated may be written in this field. Some of the addresses are imprecise, such as this one (“France”), but others include street names and house numbers.
For DPs living in Bergen-Belsen, their address was the abbreviation of the building in the former Wehrmacht barracks in which they were housed. For example, L2 stands for the second building of the former housing for lieutenants (L), and MB 78/8 stands for the eighth room in the former Mannschaftsbaracke (MB) No. 78. The MB for Mannschaftsbaracke (troop barracks) is often missing on the AJDC cards. The buildings themselves were identified by letters such as MB for Mannschaftsbaracke or S for the staff officers’ building.
