Project Instructions This collection contains records from Krakow, including questionnaires of Jews who applied for personal ID cards, household member lists, indexes, resettlement cards, and residence requests.

The German army occupied Krakow in the first week of September 1939. In May 1940 the Germans began to expel Jews from Krakow to the neighboring countryside and required them to report for forced labor by October 1940. By March 1941, the SS and police had expelled more than 55,000 Jews, and about 15,000 Jews remained in Krakow.

In early March 1941, German officials ordered the establishment of a ghetto located in the south of Krakow. Between 15,000 and 20,000 Jews lived within the ghetto boundaries. The SS and police liquidated the Krakow ghetto on March 13-14, 1943, fulfilling Himmler's order in October 1942 to complete the murder of Jews residing in the Generalgouvernement, incarcerating those whose labor was still required in forced-labor camps.

The records are primarily in German.

Form Types

There is a wide variety of records included in this collection. Some records are consistent and well-formed, which can be easily identified with the corresponding form types - we will be keying more information from these records. The other records will be classified as "Miscellaneous Documents" with minimum information being keyed. Generally you will be keying the primary name found at the top of each record.

There are more form types to choose from than we usually have for World Archives Projects. This is because we thought it important to specifically identify some documents (such as residence requests, ID cards, and resettlement cards) due to what happened to the Jewish community in Krakow. Some of these forms look very similar to each other, so please read the form type descriptions carefully and view the sample images on the wiki page for help in determining correct form types.

Keying the Documents

You may receive an image set that consists of several images in a row regarding the same primary individual. Unless you encounter duplicates each image should be keyed.

On miscellaneous records, key each easily identifiable person listed on the image as a unique record. Exceptions to this are listed below:

For records such as correspondence, biographies, narratives, or other documents that do not consist of pre-printed forms and would otherwise require translating and reading through a block of text, only key the name of the primary individual, which should appear at the top of the page or somewhere near the beginning of the text. Do not key any other names mentioned in the document. Do not key the names of government or other officials as the goal is to capture information about the people whom the document is about, not the people who administered or signed the documents. Many names and locations will contain diacritics. Key those as seen using the "Insert international characters" icon located directly above the keying grid and directly below the image or use the Ctrl+F12 shortcut.
