    Source of acquisition is in the Israel State Archives (Signature, RG-67). The records of German Consulates in Palestine were sold in 1955 as wastepapers and a large part of materials was lost. About 1800 files found their way to the Israel State Archives. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Archives received the collection from the Israel State Archives via the United States Holocaust Museum International Archives Project in March 2011.
