On the DP 2 cards, DPs could state the country to which they wanted to emigrate; this did not have to be their country of origin. Though there is space on the form not just for the name of the country but also for the city or village, the survivors usually only knew the country to which they wanted to return or emigrate. The desired country mentioned on the DP 2 card was not always the destination to which the DPs ultimately traveled, however.
