Selected records from the Archives of the Department of the Calvados
This collection was created by picking relevant documents from collections deposited at the archives by several local administrative divisions, and from the pre-war “M” series related to foreigners and immigration. The most relevant documents concern lists of Jewish inhabitants, card files made from gathering names and correspondence in relation to this, as well as files concerning the Aryanisation of property and businesses. The Aryanisation files deal almost exclusively with businesses and real estate and not with investments in businesses or shares of stock. The procedure for each file includes: a declaration of ownership made by a Jew, who is then attributed an Aryan temporary administrator; a preliminary report by the “temporary administrator” to the Commissariat Générale aux Questions Juives; a more extensive report on the owner, the estimated value or the one that has been established by an assessor, the final destination of the property (sale for large businesses, liquidation for small ones); and sale or liquidation of the property. Other documents concern secret societies and freemasons, the sub-prefecture of Bayeux, and the sub-prefecture of Vire.
