Stillhaltekomissar für Organisationen (Continuity Commissioner for Organisations) in Liberec
Extent and Medium
After the war, the fonds was stored in Chateau Lemberk, from where it was probably taken into the branch of the Ministry of the Interior in Jablonec nad Nisou. In 1951, the branch came under the Regional Archives in Liberec, where the fonds was processed and inventoried. Part of the fonds for the Ústí Province was transferred to the Archives in Litoměřice and processed there in 1955. In 1986, decision was made to return the documents of individual associations and organisations to the respective State District Archives. The rest of the documents, originally labelled as correspondence, were re-inventoried in 1998.
