Mixed collection of post war identification and work passes issued to displaced person, Olejnik Mikolaj, following his release from Dachau Concentration Camp. These documents enabled him to work in Germany and with the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA), emigrate to Australia, and to make compensation claims from the German government for the period of his internment.

Olejnik Mikolaj's name has several variations; his name was frequently misspelt and Olejnik himself adopted many of these names in addition to using other variations. Variations of his name on documents in this collection include Nikolaj, Michola, Nikolaus, Nykolys, Mykola, Mikolaj, Nicolaus; Olenjnik, Olejnik, Olajnyk, Olynyk, Oljnyk and Olejnyk.
