Hello, this is a residence permit for my great-uncle, who appears to have been working as a laborer in Braunschweig from 1939-1942. I was hoping that someone would be able to help me decipher the addresses in Braunschweig listed in the bottom row, as well as offer some context for the information in the upper portion of the card. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

see http://www.hanskottke.de/ns_in_bs/bsrund.htm

one address is Ludwigstrasse 13
7/7/2014 11:01 AM The first address on 12-Dec-1939 in Braunschweig is the "Wohnlager Arge", a Google hit says that the forced labor camp was in the Ackerstrasse,
second address on 12-May-1841 was Ludwigstrasse 13,
third address in Braunschweig was Damm 12.
All the addresses still exist and are findable on Google maps.
Last note is from 15-Apr-1942 "nach unbekannt", "to unknown".

I hope that helps
