Custodial History

The list of Jewish shop owners in Salonika, 1943, came to light as a result of investigations into Kurt Waldheim's role during the Second World War. The Greek Ministry of Justice offered the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece all the files of the former Office for the Distribution of Jewish Property, set up by the occupation authorities in 1943. In late 1987 Mark Mazower, the depositor, was given access to the material, which had not apparently been seen since the war. This is the resultant copy.
