Within hours I received a response from Gerhard Kendlbacher, telling me that my aunt had died July 30, 1945, but was not forthcoming in providing any further information, such as last residence or cause of death. I know that my aunt and spouse along with several other family members committed suicide, but I did not have any details. My father, when alive, was very reluctant to speak about this, and I never pressed the issue. Wasn't the 30. July the date when all the clinics in Badgastein were shut down and turned over to become DP Camps? Are there any records regarding these clinics prior to July 1945 and where would they be kept?
Any information or advice would be very much appreciated.
