The Yad Vashem reproduced the records at the Russian State Military Archives (Former Osobyi Archives Collections), Moscow, and provided the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum with copies. There is no reference to the Osobyi archival signatures and therefore the collections cannot be identified.
