Chapter Summary

The documents of Jewish communities kept in the state archive at The Hague are supra-communal. Most of the material deals with issues that involved Jewish communities after 1808 and concern the elite within these communities. Criminal records offer a unique source for social and judicial history brimming with information about the everyday life of Jews in less fortunate circumstances. The records are also challenging for linguists since the Yiddish documents in the dossiers are frequently translated by translateurs for the judicial authorities. Since these criminal records stem from archives of local or regional judicial authorities, they are listed under Supra-Communal Institutions after the dossiers found in the State Archives of The Hague.

Keywords: Jewish communities; supra-communal institutions; The Hague
