Les registres des arrêts des Chambres civiques de la cour de justice du département de la Seine (Z5)

Document | Accession Number: 2019.451.1 | RG Number: RG-43.173

The archives of the civic chambers of the court of justice, departmental section of the Seine, are constituted by the files of the cases judged from 1944 to 1951, classified by registration number of the Prosecutor's office, as well as by the registers of judgments and the files on behalf of the accused allowing their files to be found. The accused are often members of collaborationist parties or members of the French State services and the documents of their trials help to establish their responsibilities in the implementation of the policy of the Vichy government. We can thus find in this collection files of people who belonged to the General Commissariat for Jewish Affairs but who had a less important role within this structure.
The collection contains 33 ledgers with notations relating to the defendant of each trial, the crime for which he is accused, and whether he was convicted or acquitted. The accused were tried for the following délits (criminal offences):
for belongind to the government instituted after June 16, 1940, fo r taking a position in the directorate of one of the government’s propaganda agencies or the Commissariat général aux questions juives, for being a member of one of the collaborationists groups (the Milice, various far-right parties such as the Parti franciste or Parti populaire français), for publishing articles or pamphlets in favor of collaboration (with the Nazis). There is no alphabetical list of those accused, only a list of ledgers by date. These leaders do not constitue judicial files, they are only the summaries of the final decisions " les arrêts."
