Gabor gives us a pretty good outline of what the Auschwitz Museum archives contain and the period covered. For those with families in the previous Czechoslovak Republic, keep in mind that the Bohemian deportations begin as early as in autumn 1941 (before the Final Solution) and that the mass of Slovakian deportation occurred in the summer/fall of 1942. Thus the bulk of Czechoslovak citizen were deported during the period which those records register.
Two exceptions, very important for the H-SIG researcher:
1. Because of war efforts reasons, most of the professionals (doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc.) and their families received "exception papers" >from the local authorities, and were called "vinimky" in Slovakian, "kivetelesek" in Hungarian. These people were deported much later.
2. After late 1938, a portion of the southern part of the Czechoslovak Republic was annexed to Hungary. Jews >from that part were deported only in spring 1944, when the German Army occupied Hungary.
