Israelite Theoretic Girls Lycee of Timișoara


This collection represents a remarkably complete set of documents created by the Jewish girls lycee of Timișoara. The collection contains comprehensive immatriculation and grade registers as well as a wide range of administrative material. This includes correspondence with authorities; a log of school inspections (1923-1943); teaching staff biographies and papers; logs of incoming and outgoing correspondence; teaching curriculum; statistical information; minutes of staff meetings; and graduation certificates. The material is uninterrupted from the 1920s through to the schools presumable closure in 1947 in the wake of an education reform. As such it represents a unique perspective on Jewish education and identity in the Banat from the immediate post-WWI period throughout the interwar years and World War II. Unfortunately the inventory created by the National Archives provides no details on the school's background, for example whether it existed prior to 1923, and its relation to the other Jewish schools in Timișoara.
