Lithuanian Displaced Persons Camps

I’ll be researching a very interesting area of post World War II history in Lithuania. This is related to the Displaced Persons camps of Lithuanian citizens that were displaced by the devastation of WWII. These camps were like cities on their own and set up small postal authorities in each camp. They printed stamps which were used on all outgoing letters. Some of the camp names were Montgomery, Detmold, etc. I’ll be following this up with more detailed information on the individual camps along with pictures of the stamps.
