Census of yellow star apartments in Budapest #hungary #holocaust


Jake Jacobs
 

My mother tells me there was a census taken of Jewish residents in yellow star (Jewish) apartments in Budapest in 1944. Does anyone know whether these census documents were preserved, and if so, where I can access them?

Thank you.

To the best of my knowledge in 2015 (during the renovation of a flat in Kossuth Lajos place, inside a hole which was hidden by walls) 7000 forms were found, which are now in Budapest city Archives. It does not include every district (in fact only a few ones). If you can give me address, I will look at it for you.
I don't know if there are other sources, but there is a webpage of yellow star houses
http://www.yellowstarhouses.org/

Dear Vivian,

That URL is just the homepage.  More navigation instructions are needed the find the digitised archives.  Their search function did not find them - just books that mentioned yellow star houses.
