Registration with the SS in Netherlands #holocaust #records

In the years after the war many publications and discussions arose about the 'Joodse Raad' (Judenrat). Very impressive is what happened with hundreds of babies which were smuggled out of the babyhome across the street  from where the parents were held. The underground resistence brought them to non-jewish foster parents.

"Leaders in the Jewish Community formed an organization called the JudenRat". This sounds as if it was their initiative. Not so. The Judenrat was ordered and organised by the Nazis.

Suggest you look at the Red Cross International Tracing Service (ITS) online database at the Arolsen Archives. The now opened archives hold newly digitized records. How's your Dutch? It was a bit tricky to figure out what I was looking at and to identify the document's source. It helps to know a bit of the history of what was happening to Dutch Jews after the Nazis came in. I have to admit, that until I started digging into my European cousins' history, I had never heard of these transit camps and only knew of the most notorious concentration camps (konzentration lager (KZ)).

Leaders in the Jewish Community formed an organization called the JudenRat (Jewish Council). It became their responsibility to register every Jew living within their jurisdiction, The information, a kind of standardized census, was recorded on pre-printed cards. However, it looks like the recorder would run out of pre-printed forms and then used a typewriter to write the field names and answers on blank card stock. It's organized alphabetically by surname. It's worth looking through the adjacent scanned images.

Cards were marked with inkstamps, abbreviations, dates, and notes. I didn't find a guide to what these marks mean. Some may refer to camps where the person was sent. B.B., for example may have meant the Bergen Belsen KZ. I found that jotted on Arthur Weinthal's card. He perished there of typhoid a few months before the British liberated the camp.

On the same subject: what I mentioned in my previous message had to do with persons that had links with the SS. However, at that time the required registrations were recorded at the local townhalls and many of them can  be found in the genealogical archives of the municipality. Otherwise, try 'Joods Monument'(Jewish Monument).

Good morning,

The family may be known at the national archives at The Hague and the files might be found in their central archive Special Justice (Nationaal Archief Centraal Archief Bijzondere Rechtspleging). Be aware that these files cannot be accessed online and no photocopies can be obtained. You may use a mobile phone or make notes.
Because of corona there is only limited access for single persons.

In January 1941 all Jews in the Netherlands were required to register with the SS.
About 160,000 did. Are those records still in existence and are they available to search?
