Archival History

Rossiĭskiĭ gosudarstvennyĭ voennyĭ arkhiv


Source of acquisition is the Center for the Preservation of Historical Documentary Collections (formerly the Osobyi Archive), currently the Russian State Military Archive in Moscow. United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Archives selected and filmed the records from 1992 and 1993. The reels originally belonged to the larger collection of Osobyi microfilms. Brewster Chamberlin and Radu Ioanid instructed the Archives staff to move them to a separate location in RG-25, because they contain records relating to the Holocaust in Romania.

Scope and Content

Contains records relating to the activities of the Council of Ministers; the military and economic effects of the General Staff of the Army’s 1940 evacuation of Bessarabia; and the General Staff’s response to an order from Ion Antonescu dated December 4, 1943. Also included are reports by the Military Cabinet on partisan activities, the treatment of Jews, anti-Soviet propaganda, the disposition of Romanian property in Bessarabia and North Bukovina in 1940, Romanian prisoners of war in the USSR, and SSI correspondence with military organs relating to conditions in Transnistria, Bessarabia, Bukovina, and Moldavia.
