    This collection contains selected records related to the prewar, wartime, and immediate postwar history of the Jewish communities of the Tuzla region in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The collection includes selected records of the local administration (councils, Regional People's Committee etc.), judicial bodies (courts), and educational organizations (public schools, trade and technical schools) providing information about individual Jews and Jewish families residing in the Tuzla region. Among the records are personal files of local Jews applying for the restitution of the property confiscated by the Ustasha regime during WWII, records related to the assistance provided by the local administration to Jewish families after WWII, and the nationalization of the property left by the local Jews who immigrated to Israel.
