This collection contains records relating to the operations of the Commissariat Général aux Questions Juives (CGQJ), established by the Vichy government of France in March 1941. The CGQJ was responsible for defining Jewish status; inventorying Jews and their possessions prior to property Aryanization; excluding Jews from the French economy; implementing anti-Jewish laws and regulations; and arresting, interning, and deporting foreign and French Jews. Included are a variety of documents relating to the CGQJ’s operations during the German occupation, as well as records form the Ministre des Finances (1940–1944), which worked in tandem with the CGQJ during the war years. This material does not contain all the files in the original French collection, nor does it duplicate the collection the USHMM copied at the Centre de documentation Juive contemporaine (CDJC).
