ITS received these photos and personal possessions from authorities in the British occupation zone after the war. The items came from the Neuengamme concentration camp, near Hamburg; from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, near Hanover; and from the Gestapo. Of 4,300 sets of personal possessions, 1,600 have been returned to their owners. Several packages of possessions were returned recently on January 14, 2008, when a small delegation from the Dutch village of Putten visited Bad Arolsen to reclaim the personal items of relatives and friends. On the night of September 30, 1944, members of the Dutch underground ambushed a German convoy near the village, killing two officers. In retaliation, Germans troops rounded up 600 men from Putten and sent them to Neuengamme. Only 48 survived. The village was burned.
