I was wondering if anyone remembers Lager Feffernitz? in Austria. A number of Gottschee went there after the War. I remember playing in the mountains as a child, picking rasberries and selling them. the housing was only barracks that were left by the soldiers. We left for the States in '55 and moved to Ridgewood, Queens.
