The Post-War Period

After the war, the Allied Forces confiscated and dismantled the factories, and some buildings were blown up. At first, the camps were occupied by Displaced Persons and by prisoners of war, later on exiles and refugees were housed there.

As from 1947, new settlement of handicraft and industry could be organized, based on the existing infrastructure: It was the beginning of a development turning Allendorf into the most important industrial site of the rural district of Marburg-Biedenkopf.
