    Administrative Notes

    Source of acquisition is the Żydowski Instytut Historyczny im. Emanuela Ringelbluma, Sygn.102. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Archives received the digitized collection via the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum International Archival Programs Division in Jan. 2016.
    Remnants of the archive of the Jewish Community in Prague were found after the war on the Polish territories. Transported documents abandoned on the side-track in the last month of war probably in the Valley of Kłodzk (Kotlina Kłodzka) were handed over to the Central Jewish Historical Commission and, in 1947, along with the entire holdings of the Commission, found their way to the archive of Jewish Historical Institute established in Warsaw.
