Biographical History

The Deutsches Staatsministerium für Böhmen und Mähren (Německé státní ministerstvo pro Čechy a Moravu) under Karl Hermann Frank was created by a "Führer Decree" on 20th of August 1943. This was the official recognition of the power aspirations of Karl Hermann Frank since the death of Reinhard Heydrich in June 1942 to become the first man in the Protectorate administration. The Deutsches Staatsministerium für Böhmen und Mähren became the highest authority of the German occupation administration in the Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia and unified the functions of the Staatsekretär beim Reichsprotektor (Sectretary of State at the Reichsprotector) and of the Höhere SS- und Polizeiführer.

Archival History

In its current form the collection Deutsches Staatsministerium für Böhmen und Mähren was arranged shortly after the end of WWII by the State Security (Státní bezpečnost, StB) of the Czechoslovak Ministry of Interior. In 1952 the collection was marked with number 110, named Úřad státního ministra (Office of the State Minister) and stored in 107 boxes. The collection was considered as a continuation of the collection Státní tajemník K. H. Frank při říšském protektorovi (State secretary K. H. Frank at the Reichsprotektor/Staatssekretär K. H. Frank beim Reichsprotektor) (Collection number 109).
