After 1945, the fonds was taken by the Ministry of the Interior to Prague, from where it was handed over in 1957–1958 to the State Archives in Litoměřice. The fonds was inventoried in 1961–1963. In 1968, the archives took on another 467 boxes (so-called fonds № 112) from the Main Administration of State Security in Prague, for which a partial inventory was created. For better orientation in the files of the Department for General and Internal Matters and its Department of Municipal Matters (1b Kom II) – Administration of Jewish property, a name index was created in 2002, into which the names of all people of Jewish faith were entered.
