In 1939, the Nazis built Lager Föhrenwald o house construction workers of IG Farben, and was then forced-labor subcamp of Dachau concentration camp, populated by slave laborers.
In June ,1945, the camp was appropriated by the United States Army administration of Germany's American sector, and Lager Föhrenwald labor camp was turned into a Displaced Persons' camp.
The camp's initial population was comprised of Jewish, Yugoslavian, Hungarian, and Baltic refugees.
On October 3, 1945, General Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered that Föhrenwald be made an exclusively Jewish DP camp, after he had found living conditions at the Feldafing camp unacceptable.


From 1946 to 1948, Föhrenwald DP Camp, operated by UNRRA, became the third largest DP camp in the American sector, after Feldafing and Landsberg.
By January, 1946, Föhrenwald DP Camp's population had reached 5,600.
