Records of small claims court cases, Câmpulung Moldovenesc


This collection consists of court dossiers pertaining to various civil cases, the vast majority involving inheritance, and a considerable amount relating to property cases, contracts, and the issuing or release of records and certificates. The property cases cover the broadest range of topics, ranging from cases concerning recognition or establishment of ownership, eviction, destruction or damage to the property, and the sale or surrender of property from one party to another. The contract cases typically involve the cancellation of or release from a contract, or various claims about breaches of contractual obligations. Owing to the considerable size of the Jewish population in the Câmpulung district, a substantial number of these cases involve Jewish individuals and companies or banks with Jewish owners. A number of the cases from the 1940s appear to relate to the seizing or redistribution of Jewish property around the time of the deportations. For example, in 1940 there is a notable spike in cases involving the striking of claims or of debts relating to properties, and in 1942 there are correspondence and documents relating to the redrawing of property books. 1943 features several property and financial cases involving the Centrul Național de Românizare București (National Center for Romanianization). Beginning in 1944 and 1945 there are a number of cases involving Jewish individuals seeking “recognition of ownership” of property. As the majority of these cases concern property, access is generally restricted. Special permission is required to view the majority of these cases.
