SLUPSKI, Kazimiez
« on: Monday 02 January 17 03:16 GMT (UK) »
Could anyone please help me to trace Polish and German records and/or history for the Subject person:

SLUPSKI, Kazimierz, Polish, R.C. born 10.07.1926 Poland/Warschau, arrived Wellington, New Zealand on 24 Jun 1949 aboard the "Dundalk Bay" for Pahiatua Camp.

Embarkation Number = F4405  [F = Single Man fit for Employment, first 4 = Polish, last three digits (405) = embarkation roll].

He came from the Displaced Persons Camp, Butzbach, U.S. Zone Germany (which I believe was just north of Frankfurt)

The SS 'Dundalk Bay' departed with Emigrants from Grugliasco Camp, Italy, sailing from Trieste on 20 May 1949 under the auspices of the International Refugee Organisation, Group Resettlement to New Zealand.

His full name may well be Kazimierz Jan SLUPSKi and he was known as Karl.

The family is very interested in tracing his earlier whereabouts in Poland and then Germany before his emigration to NZ as a refugee.

With thanks in advance for any help offered.

Regards

As I haven't had responses to my posting, could anyone please tell me if lists exist of Displaced Persons from the Butzbach Camp. Slupski may have been Forced Labour from Poland and then placed in the camp when the war ended.

Hi francoso

Direct descendants or close relatives of Kazimierz could try putting in a request here:

https://www.its-arolsen.org/en/information/request-for-information-on-victims-of-nazi-persecution/

It is a free service, but you may have to wait a long time for them to find and send information, if they have it, so be patient!

Did Kazimierz marry?  Any details of parents from a marriage certificate?  Any information helps searching.

Kind regards
Gaie
