    • Department of Justice. Public Security Administration. Foreign Police. General Files Series 2 (2003 Transfer)

    This fonds is, above all, a source of information on the role of the State in Belgian society, although its wealth goes far beyond this particular aspect of Belgium's political and social history. All the activities in which foreigners were involved on Belgian territory are mentioned. This ranges from religious orders to circuses and musicians, as well as (universal) exhibitions. The establishment of foreign companies was also the responsibility of the Foreign Police. Moreover, a multitude of subjects concerning foreigners such as the carrying of weapons, gambling, education, etc. were deal...

    • Ministry of Finance. Carl Requette Archives, liquidator of the Belgian Repatriation Commission

They come from the archives of the Belgian Commission for Repatriation (C.B.R.) as well as files transmitted by the Ministry of Public Health concerning Minister Marteaux's "hospital re-equipment" operation. Within its limited volume, the fonds has a considerable documentary value. It shines a light on Carl Requette's work as liquidator, but also that of the C.B.R. By including the documents th...

    • Federal Public Service Justice. Department of Worship and Secularism. Files on the Jewish Religion

In fact, the fonds contains vital archives on the creation and management of all the country's synagogues as well as on the State's relations with the Central Consistory and most of the...

  5. Ministère des Affaires Economiques. Office belge de gestion et de liquidation)

    • Ministry of Economic Affairs. Belgian Administration and Liquidation Office

    This archival collection is of interest for three principle reasons. First, a study of the archives allows us to understand the establishment and operation of the Belgian Administration and Liquidation Office an organisation created by the State at the beginning of the Second World War for the management of Belgian property. Second, it also sheds light on the life of Belgians in London during the Second World War, through files other than those relating to the management of the Office, for example no. 114. Finally, a large number of the archives provides us with information on maritime tran...
