The International Refugee Organization (IRO) established a Cutting and sewing school in Scheinfeld. Marija Kulikauskiene, a 30 year old refugee, received this certificate.
From 1946 to 1949 a displaced persons camp was set up in Scheinfeld. About 1,500 Lithuanians were brought there from the Regensburg camp. The camp was a center of Lithuanian culture. Venta and Suduvija published creative works by Lithuanian refugees. The camp also had a short lived community currency.
