My father's youngest sister and her husband died in Badgastein, Austria, very close to the end of WW II. He was a physician at one of the clinics there. Both were born in Germany though. Is there any way to find out more about their deaths? Family Search catalogs do not carry anything about Badgastein. Does anyone know where those records would be kept?
Any help is very much appreciated.

civil-records started in Austria after 1938. so ask at Standesamt/registry-office Bad Gastein.
think you must attach a document which shows relationship.

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.

is she buried there?

Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs 1945 wurde in Bad Gastein aus requirierten Hotels ein DP-Lager eingerichtet für jüdische so genannte Displaced Persons, von denen die meisten aus dem DP-Lager Ebensee nach Bad Gastein verlegt worden waren. Das Lager, in dem zeitweise bis zu 1.300 Personen lebten, wurde im März 1946 aufgelöst.
After the end of World War II in 1945 in Bad Gastein hotels requisitioned from a DP camp set up for so-called Jewish displaced persons, most of whom had been transferred from the DP camp Ebensee to Bad Gastein. The camp, in which at times lived up to 1,300 people, was dissolved in March 1946.
