    From the end of WW2 in ETO was there a US team of intelligence officers/ncos regarding Flossenburg sub camps in Czech and Bavaria

      I have references to my father, sgt US Army, being in Graslitz, Czech involved in post war town management and in Ansbach.  Both towns have references to being a  subcamp of Flossenburg. Any idea what was happening and what regiments were there, May 1945 - Oct 1945

          Dear Mr. Leven,

           

          Thank you for sharing your question with the History Hub.

           

          Based on a survey of National Archives Record Groups 238 (Collection of World War II War Crimes Records), RG 338 (Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter)), and RG 407 (Records of the Adjutant General’s Office), the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum has compiled a preliminary list of concentration, internment and labor camps and prisons liberated mostly by U.S. Army divisions. This list is only a guide. Some of the military records are not clear regarding liberation. According to the list, though, these are the divisions credited with the liberation of Flossenbürg:

           

          1st Infantry Division liberated Falkenau an der Eger (Flossenbürg subcamp)

          65th Infantry Division liberated Flossenbürg subcamp

          90th Infantry Division liberated Flossenbürg

          9th Armored Division liberated Falkenau an der Eger (Flossenbürg subcamp)

           

          For additional information concerning this subject, you may wish to write to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial, 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, SW, Washington, DC 20024-2126. Their web site is http://www.ushmm.org/.

           

          You can also contact the Textual Reference Branch at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland with specific questions about about the records listed above. The email address is archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          Thank you, again, for posting your question to the History Hub.
