This file contains charts and correspondence regarding property stolen from Jews that were deported (the euphemism ”evacuated” is used in Romanian).

These files contain all construction permit applications for the respective year including the architectural plans and schemes required for securing a permit. The first several pages of the file list the contents, by applicant name, so one can even quickly discern what names are included in any respective file. To take 1928 as an example, many or perhaps most of the major building projects were proposed by Jewish residents, of interest is that within that number there was a noticeable number of female applicants. Most applications from this year are for houses or storage sheds, but there are also applications for shops or additions to houses.

This file contains names of council members invited to participate in meetings as well as the order of the day for those meetings. The town council had Jewish members and some of the matters addressed relate to Jewish residents.

From 1889 to 1918 there are thirteen files entitled ”correspondence in German.” A survey of about half of these files indicates that they generally contain sale-and-purchase contracts between individuals and the town hall, communications from Austrian Imperial officials from Vienna or Czernowitz to local town officials in Câmpulung, plans for the construction of municipal utility facilities, beautification measures or petitions, and various documents or charts of residents violating certain rules or regulations (ie. Insufficient chimney operation). Given the significant Jewish population, Jews are generally represented in these files in all sorts of capacities: as municipal officials, as private businessmen, as shopkeepers, artisans, and the like. Some files contain only a few documents, some up to a hundred or more. The call number for the respective file is generally 1/YEAR but please consult the inventory for the Câmpulung town hall collection (Primăria orașului Câmpulung Moldovenesc) for the exact number.
