This folder contains a variety of documents related to individuals deported to Transnistria. Primarily the documents are requests from family members who remained in Romania for their deported relatives to be returned to the country. There are also some notes and memos regarding sums of money sent to deportees. The requests from family members for their relatives to be restored provide various details about the deportee, the circumstances surrounding their deportation, and the material circumstances of the author of the letter. Frequently various civil records are included such as birth certificates.
This folder contains correspondence between the central offices of the Jewish council and the Cernăuți offices. The correspondence and material primarily concerns the budget, though some other matters are also mentioned (requests for holiday materials,etc).
These two folders contain almost 400 "declarations" made by the heads of households in Cernăuți in 1942. The forms contain the names of the household members, including relation to the head of the household, age, occupation, and various permit or authoritization numbers. The address, date, signature are also included. Please note that while there are almost 400 such forms, many tens of thousands of Jews lived in Cernăuți throughout the war so these forms only contain the names of a fraction of the Jewish population. Many of the forms in folder 298 sustained water damage and are illegible. The forms were created by the county office of Czernowitz Jews (Oficiul Județean al Evreilor Cernăuți).
