The collection includes the paperwork and material collected by the Alba county Securitate (Romanian Communist Secret Police) offices under communism. The material includes select folders from the pre-communist period; these folders were presumably in the possession of the police and seized by the Securitate at some point in time. Unlike most county collections, there are very few folder titles which explicitly mention Jewish matters. There are many hundreds of folders which are obliquely titled or refer to a place (ie. Valea Lunga, etc) but give no indication as to the details of the contents. At the time of the JBAT survey (2015), the inventory for this collection was accessible only at the physical location of the CNSAS and only in digital form on the computers of the CNSAS reading room. The inventory provided no indication as to the linear extent of the collection and gave no additional details as to its history or content. For details on folders titled as specifically containing material related to the Jewish population, please click on the link(s) below.
