After dissolution of the branch in Kašperské Hory of the Reich Regional Court in Cheb (later in Deggendorf), all files were taken over by the District Court in Sušice. Its successor, the People’s Court in Sušice handed them over in two stages in 1959 and 1960 to the State Archives in Plzeň. Here, this material was arranged in December 1961 and then inventoried. Only a negligible part of the fonds remains unarranged.

Scope and Content

Archival records in the fonds are an important source for the development of the judicial system and administration of justice in regions which were administratively affiliated in 1939 to the Bavarian Ostmark. For study of Jewish history, it is possible in particular to use call № 346, box № 33 (marital law, 1939–1944), call № 346a, box № 33 (requests for removal of obstacles in marriage, 1939–1943) and also in particular the agenda of marital matters stored under call № R, box № 80–99 (marital matters, divorces etc., 1938–1944), which contain information about oppression and persecution of the Jews during the occupation.

System of Arrangement

The fonds contains Administrative files (general, main, collective, personal) and the proper judicial agenda (civil and criminal). Incremental registers and Indices exists for the files.
