This is a collection of records of birth, marriage, and death, usually in the form of register books kept by religious officials. The collection is arranged alphabetically by the name of the locality, and then if applicable subdivided into subparts by religious denomination. Depending on the time period and on the size of the congregation, birth, marriage, and death registers may consist of separate volumes or be contained in a single volume. Please note that this collection consists of register books for localities within the boundaries of Suceava county, established after the second World War. Suceava County (Județ) includes all of Southern Bukovina (i.e. the part of Austrian Bukovina now within Romania's boundaries), as well as some additional territories which were never part of the Austrian province of Bukovina. For details on the Jewish community record books contained within this collection, please see the links below.
Most police collections have files regarding the movements or actions of foreigners. The contents of these files will vary from year to year but documents frequently refer to Jewish individuals, either because they did not assume Romanian citizenship (and thus are considered Austrian), they were visiting or they lost their Romanian citizenship.
Despite its name, the majority of this file has little to do with items stolen from the Jews of Solca. There are a few documents related to things taken – lamps, radios, etc – but most of the contents have to do with other administrative matters.
These files contain correspondence and reports on any sort of "suspect persons." Especially after the war began, this meant that many of the suspect people were Jews, many trying to escape territories occupied by the Germans or the Soviets. There may also be lists of people considered communists or of those whose Romanian citizenship was revoked after they received citizenship from elsewhere (Palestine, Canada, America).
These files contain a variety of correspondence, reports, ordinances, leaflets, and charts regarding various extreme movements in Romania prior to and during World War II. There is information on nationwide incidents but also local members of these parties.
This collection contains records created by the police department of Solca during the late interwar period and World War II. Of interest to those researching regional Jewish history may be numerous folders concerning papers related to "suspected" individuals or "foreigners". Many of these individuals or so-called foreigners were Jews fleeing war zones to the north or local Jews whose Romanian citizenship had been revoked (through anti-Semitic legislation in 1938) or who had never claimed Romanian citizenship in the first place and were regarded as Austrian foreigners. There is also one folder titled property taken from Jews, though the contents primarily concerns other matters. For details on these items, please see below.
This register book contains the names of individuals granted Romanian citizenship from Solca from 1933-1942. Data includes only name of individual, date on which nationality was granted, and the individual's occupation. In the 1930s in particular the register includes many Jewish residents of Solca.
