Requests for Palestine Certificates for people in Hungarian-speaking lands, 1944 (ID: 49494)
The lists identify families and contain names, ages, and towns. In many cases, they also contain detailed descriptions of extended families (cousins, in-laws, etc.) and street addresses. Early lists were sent directly to the Jewish Agency for Palestine. After the creation of the US Government’s War Refugee Board, the lists were sent to the Board for forwarding to the representative of the Jewish Agency in Istanbul. The lists are in the records of the War Refugee Board at the F.D. Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park, New York, and appear online in three pdf files as follows:
