Related Units of Description

  • Since the Belgian municipalities kept the original forms while sending copies to the Sicherheitspolizei-Sicherheitsdienst in Brussels, some of the municipalities still have their original Jewish registers. Kazerne Dossin digitised several of these municipal series (Zonhoven, Diepenbeek, Jette, Sint-Jans-Molenbeek) and added them to its catalogue under a separate call number. The complete Jewish Register of Belgium, consisting of copies of the forms sent to the Sicherheitsdienst in Brussels, is catalogued as KD_00008. However, the forms of Sint-Jans-Molenbeek are missing in the Jewish Register of Belgium.
