This collection contains a wide variety of papers created by the Town Hall of Radăuți during the Austro-Hungarian period until the early community period. The material covers all areas of town administration from elections to property administration to overseeing of professional organizations and so forth. Material specifically related to the Jewish population includes information on cultural and professional organizations (many Jewish), files related to the deportation of Jews (euphemistically called "evacuation") and handling of the remaining property, bids for market stalls (many of which were made by Jews), various files on impoverished survivors of Transnistria requesting welfare or proof of citizenship.

This file contains various orders and correspondence regarding wartime evacuation scenarios. Notably, document 5 states that Jews are not to be evacuated during any mass evacuation, and document 21 states that Jews assigned to work details in local businesses and military facilities may be made to work overtime in light of needs to “increase production.” It appears that in this context, "evacuation" was not intended as a euphemism for deportation to Transnistria, but was in fact used to refer to a general population evacuation in the event of foreign invasion, for example.
This file contains reports, documents, and correspondence regarding border patrols and mobilization efforts. Some disciplinary reports mention infractions of border guards who aided Jews, and later documents solicit local law enforcement to draw up reports relating to various groups which may pose security threats, including national minorities (Hungarians, Germans, Jews, etc), religious sects, and radical political groups both right and left.
This file contains various circulars, bulletins, orders, and reports sent by county officials in Rădăuți to the Dornești precinct pertaining to border regulations and policing. Many of the documents contain information regarding restrictions placed on Jewish residents of these regions, both on their freedom of movement as well as other spheres, such as restrictions on their telephone service.
This files contains various orders, reports, and correspondence regarding the status of foreigners, verification of citizenship, renunciation and revocation of citizenship. Many of the items pertain to the status of Jews of various nationalities – see for example sheets 234-238, which include lists of all Jews in Rădăuți district who entered Romania after 1936. Elsewhere, as on sheet 390, tables and lists offer data on various minority groups, including Jews, purely on the basis of ethnicity, rather than on citizenship or other qualifiers. Elsewhere, documents list various restrictions and ordinances affecting foreigners in Romania – for example, sheet 461 contains an order prohibiting any foreign Jews from visiting spa or resort towns as well as rural areas. Several of the items in the final third of the file directly or obtusely mention deportations and repatriations of Jews, in some cases providing lists of names, as well as information on Jews permitted to remain at their own residence.
