Displaced persons IRO Camp

Postby Laila » 04 Sep 2009, 07:20

I am searching for anyone who might have some information on twin sisters Feodosija (Fani) and Glikeria (Geli) Solovjevs DOB 24/10/1924 who were interred at Alberobello Camp (Casa Rossa) between ?1945/49? and then at IRO Camp Jesi ?1947/50?. Feodosijia had a baby girl born on 1st May 1949 (fathers name unknown) who she named Laila. The three of them emigrated to Australia 1950 on the USS General Muir which arrived October 25th 1950. Any information about my relatives prior to and during the years of 1924 to 1950 would be fantastic.

Hi there
Thank you so much for sending me this information. I already have some information but am very interested in IRO Camp Jesi and also where and how my Mother and Aunt came to be at Alberobello. Is there any way that I can find this out? The are Latvian (Jewish?). My father was a person my mother met at the camp in Jesi though I know nothing about him. She did tell me that my father was a doctor who worked at the camp (surname Musio/Muzio?). How can I find out infor about this camp?
Thanks for your assistance, you have no idea how much I appreciate it.
Bless you.
Laila

Hi there again
The only information is IRO camp Jesi in the region of Marche. There must have been a convent or catholic hospital close by because I was born with nuns in attendance. I hope this helps?
Bless you
