Austria, Vienna, Jewish Emigrant Applications, 1938–1939

This exclusive collection from Vienna, Austria contains emigration-related records from the Jewish community in Vienna, Austria from 1938 to 1939. The collection, which includes scanned images of the original documents, was published in partnership with the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People.

In May 1938, Jews living in Austria registered with the emigration department of the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde (the Jewish community organization in Vienna) if they intended to leave the country and escape Nazi persecution.

The records contain the name of the applicant, address, date of birth, place of birth, marital status, nationality, residency status in Vienna and if the applicant resided elsewhere, information about the profession and the last-held professional position, any newly learned professions, language skills, economic situation, and monthly income. They also contain the emigration destination; personal plans abroad; financial resources for emigration; relatives and friends abroad, especially in the destination country (including name, address, and degree of kinship); references; and passport information. In addition to the information about the applicant, the questionnaires contain information about any dependents, including degree of relationship, name, places of birth, dates of birth, and occupation. In some cases, the questionnaires also provide information about the applicant’s parents. 

These “emigration sheets” form one of the most informative collections on Austrian Jews from the years 1938–39. The forms are often supplemented by additional documents, including letters, affidavits, official papers, and correspondence, as well as stamps and hand-written notes that were added as part of the file processing.
