The documents of the German Settlement Company got into the archives together with the documents of the former estates of New Bystřice and Landstejn. The fonds was arranged and inventoried in 1978.
The fonds includes fragments of the archival records of the German Settlement Company in Nová Bystřice, showing the life and administration of the Nazis in the border regions in 1938-1945. The files relating to prisoners of war and foreign nationals are especially valuable.
