Danubius, XXXVIII, Galaţi, 2020, pp. 255-316.
The Ministry of External Affairs owns an important fund of diplomatic documents (more than 8,000 linear meters of archives), issued by the central administration, by diplomatic missions and by Romanian consulates from abroad. The files are organized according to the problem they deal with (from 1 to 105), as they were classified in the Archives Nomenclatory created in 1909, according to the Austrian pattern. This system is in use even today, for classifying most of the archival funds. According to this system, we pay a special attention to Problem no. 33 – Jews Related Issues (1900-1948).
The study aims at analysing the documents pertaining to this problem, which deal with the emigration of the Romanian Jews, at the end of the XIX-th century and the beginning of the next one.
