The fonds was stored in the building of the District Court in Most, from where it was gradually accepted and arranged part by part during 1964. An inventory and index were created in 1964 for the personal files of higher-ranking employees. The fonds was subject to internal appraisal in 1997 and re-inventoried.

Scope and Content

The fonds contains documents from the activity of the regional court in the period of the occupation. Documents are preserved in the fonds relating to liquidation of Jewish companies. This concerns court files: Bankruptcies from 1939–1942 (inv. № 256, 257), Bankruptcy settlement from 1940–1941 (inv. № 258). Ownership changes of the companies of individuals and joint stock companies are documented by books of company records held according to Amtsgerichts (district courts) from 1939–1945 (inv. № 273-295).

System of Arrangement

The fonds is structured into 4 groups: I. Staff files, II. General files stored according to the registry plan, III. Collective files, IV. Proper court files. Official books and assisting books have been preserved in the fonds (registers and indices).
