This collection contains material pertaining to Jews residing in the Alpes de Haute-Provence, and to the administrative procedures for arresting and holding Jews in internment camps there. The prewar Department of the Basses-Alpes had no Jewish population, but became a refuge for Jews fleeing the Occupied Zone in the North for the Italian-occupied (before November 1942) portion of the South. The citadel of Sisteron became an internment camp, and Jews were kept under house arrest in several communes (rural districts).
