After the Holocaust, a Displaced Persons (DP) camp was established in the Austrian town of Bad Gastein, which operated during the second half of the 1940s. In the Ebensee DP camp, 140 km north of Bad Gastein, the Jews were in the minority, most of the DPs being Polish. In order to prevent tension between Jewish and non-Jewish DPs, hundreds of Jews from Ebensee were transferred to the DP camp in Bad Gastein.
