After the war, the fonds was taken over by the Ministry of the Interior in Prague together with the other fonds of Nazi organisations and institutions. In 1963–1964, the fonds was handed over to the branch of the State Regional Archives in Jablonec nad Nisou. After rough arrangement, the fonds was moved to Litoměřice in 1966. Definitive arrangement took place in 1997.
The Leadership of the Reichsgau Branch of NSDAP in Liberec was the supreme political body in the Reichsgau (Region) of the Sudetenland. This is why its preserved documents are of exceptional importance for learning about persecution of the Jewish population within the territory of the Sudetenland in 1938–1945. The most important documents include situation reports of the district management of the NSDAP (inv. № 3), local groups (inv. № 4) and other institutions. Material about the history of the Jews can be found in instructions of the Region Management of NSDAP (inv. № 22) and in the instructions of individual departments of Reichsgau (Region) Management of the NSDAP (inv. № 24) from 1938–1945. The section Reichsgau (Region) Office for Education contains training materials regarding the Jewish question (inv. № 82).
The fonds is organised into 16 subject groups which reflect the organisational structure of the office: I. Situation Reports, II. Reichsgau Organisational Office, III. Reichsgau Staff Office, IV. Reichsgau Staff, V. Reichsgau Office for Propaganda, VI. Reichsgau Press Office, VII. Reichsgau Office for Education, VIII. Reichsgau Legal Office, IX. Reichsgau Court, X. Reichsgau treasury, XI. Reichsgau Office for Care for the Wellbeing of People, XII. Reichsgau Office for Public Health, XIII. Reichsgau Economic advisor, XIV. Reichsgau Office for the Nationality Issue, XV.
