Contains records of the Jewish community of Tunisia pertaining to the spoliation of its members by the German authorities from December 1942 to April 1943 and subsequent efforts to recover confiscated assets. These records include reports detailing the chronology and extent of the spoliation of Jews in Tunisia by the SS as well as the attempt by the French colonial authorities from 1944 to 1947 to compel the Jewish community to compensate its own members for damages wrought upon them by the Germans. The most significant document in this group of records attests to the destruction of the so-called ‘Jewish census’ ordered by the Vichy authorities in 1941 as well as the asset declarations filed by each individual member of the Jewish community before they were Aryanized and expropriated.
