Thousands of documents >from 1944 cataloging the Jewish population of
Budapest were found when an apartment was being renovated. The papers date
from before the Hungarian Jews were confined in the Budapest ghetto when the
City's officials drafted a list of the city's population separating the
Christians >from the Jews. Archivists are looking as to who lived in the
building during the time the papers were placed in the walls.
