DPs could receive varying amounts of support from the IRO. On the IRO cards from the French occupation zone, the following distinctions can be found: If a DP received full support, meaning emigration assistance as well, the letter “B” is found here. “BJS” stands for support on site but without emigration assistance. “BN” or “BJ” was used to refer to DPs who were within the mandate of the IRO and thus received political protection but no additional assistance. “AN” stands for the withdrawal of DP status. The “C” found on some cards probably means that the DP was living in a camp.
