"Lithuanians, alongside with other refugees, who ended up in Germany during the WWII, were taken under the care of the army when the war was over. On 1945 May-June with the help of UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) refugees were placed in encampments known as Displaced Persons camps. In postwar Germany 269 DP camps were established, Lithuanians were scattered among 113 of them. Three main DP camp types: Former military barracks; Cabins built for foreign laborers (or after 1945 for refugees); Formerly occupied apartments (entire streets or blocks with Germans gone were given away for DP, especially in Baden-Württemberg and French zone). Living conditions in the camps were invidious – every person got 4 square meters of living space. Since every barrack room had from 30 to 40 square meters, sometimes two or even three families lived in one room. Part of the buildings were damaged in the war and poorly heated. In private apartments living was a bit more comfortable, because of sanitary equipment. According to the scientists, who researched this historical period, only every third refugee from Lithuania survived and found a shelter in the DP camps. According to different sources the number of those Lithuanians varies from 60 to 70 thousand" (Latvian National Archive).
