Fire in the Kamenets Podolsky City-State Archives

On April 9, 2003, a fire destroyed a massive amount of Jewish and civil records stored in a warehouse of the archives in Kamenets Podolsky. Five of the most valuable fonds (record groups) were destroyed including fonds: 112, 226, 228, 249 and 678. Among the very valuable documents destroyed were the revision lists (lists of inhabitants) dating back into the 1700s. For more information about this fire and the types of documents that were destroyed, click on "News Flash" above. All surviving historic documents from this archive have been transferred to the Khmelnitskiy Oblast Archives. According to the director of the Ukraine State Archives, the surviving documents are not accessible for research until further notice, later in 2004. When the documents are available for research, it will be announced on the 'News Alert' on this website. At this time, there is no town-by-town listing available as to which documents survived and which documents were destroyed. Therefore, this website will not delete any entries from the archive
database, as a memorial to 'what was.'
