The fonds contains records arising from the activities of the Landrat (district councillor), which were kept in the registry office. After May 1945 the records were gradually appraised and a number of them were destroyed. In 1952 the records of the District National Committee and the remainder of the Landrat records were relocated to the town hall building. Some of these records were acquired by the District Archives Jablonec, probably in 1955, and the remainder were sent to the then State Archives Jablonec in 1959. The latter group of records was inventoried in February 1960 and transferred to the district archives a few years later, where the two sets of Landrat records were put together. The Landrat records were rearranged and inventoried in 1997.

Scope and Content

Jews are referred to directly in inventory records relating to the following: Jewish property – debts (Inv. No. 246) and Jewish and pro-Jewish charity foundations (Inv. No. 247).
