This file contains various petitions and related documents and correspondence. Owing to the circumstances of the immediate post-war period, the bulk of the petitions are from individuals seeking certificates of poverty and certificates of nationality. There is evidence of active Jewish community life and of the presence of Jewish residents, including some returned from Transnistria, who are active in the commercial, professional, and civic life of Rădăuți.
This file contains a large number of petitions or requests made by individuals, businesses, and organizations, the bulk of which concern food rationing, especially bread rations. Many requests are made by Jewish individuals, businesses, and organizations, including the “Jewish Center for the Protection of Mothers and Children” (Centrul Evreiesc de Protecție a Mamei și Copilului). A substantial number of other requests are also present, including many requests for the issuance of citizenship documents, vital records, or copies thereof.
This file contains various civic ordinances, documents and correspondence, many of which pertain to the manufacture and distribution of flour and the issuance of certificates pertaining to Romanian citizenship. The latter category includes both requests for proof of Romanian citizenship and renunciations of citizenship, especially in cases of emigration. Many of those making these requests are Jewish. Finally, of especial note is a group of documents scattered throughout the folder, but especially in the final 20 pages, which relate to requests made by Jewish businessmen and tradesmen for reductions or exemptions from various taxes and fees since they are no longer permitted to work. Although it does not specifically mention Jews, a request from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Bucharest, signed by a Legionary Commander, encourages the increase of “ethnic Romanian element” in certain branches, either through the “creation of new enterprises” or through the “replacement of minorities” (sheet 155). Elsewhere, sheet 39 refers to Jewish property sold to non-Jews during the period before the state seizure of Jewish property. Several documents, such as sheet 73, refer to rental agreements for market stalls, wherein a Jewish tenant's stall is often rented to a new tenant after the expiration of the lease, which in almost all cases appears to be December 31, 1940.
This file contains various documents and correspondence pertaining to the citizenship of, by and large, the Jewish residents of Rădăuți or of those born in Rădăuți. Typically, the documents consist of a request to correct an omission of the resident's name in the register of nationalities, and thereby to acquire Romanian citizenship. In some cases, individuals born in Rădăuți but living elsewhere, often in Germany, seek to confirm and officially acquire Romanian citizenship, but the majority of applicants appear to be individuals still living in Rădăuți or elsewhere in Romania. These papers may be related to legislation passed in 1938 revoking or calling into question Romanian citizenship of Jews. Various other types of documents are scattered among these papers, including a large group of papers pertaining to taxes on cinemas; these usually include a list of the films they were showing.
This item consists of a register dealing with proof of citizenship of residents of the municipality. Name, year of birth, and a citation of their citizenship record are given, along with any family members (wife, children, etc.) for whom this citizenship is also valid. Notes are added, sometimes at a later date, if the citizenship is declared void, often in the case in which the individual or family acquires foreign citizenship or is proven not to reside in the municipality.
This file contains correspondence, meeting minutes, and various other papers pertaining to civic affairs in the municipality of Gura Humorului. Several documents and papers relate to Jewish citizens and the Jewish community, including a document beginning on page 272 regarding the makeup and character of the local Jewish community. Elsewhere, a number of items have to do with the matter of citizenship, which owing to the recent change of regime, was a major topic. Relating to this matter are several lists, such as the one beginning on sheet 26, which offer basic vital statistics on local residents born outside of the Bukovina province. The lists usually state place and date of birth and locality in which they were naturalized as citizens. A number of those listed appear to be Jews who emigrated from Galicia, Transylvania, and elsewhere both within and without the former Habsburg territories.
This item is a register containing forms from the census of young men from the graduating classes of 1926-1933 in and around Târnăveni.
