The Palestine Offices

Card Catalogs of the Palestine Offices

The Central Zionist Archives holds various card catalogs of the Palestine Offices.
The Palestine Offices served as local embassies or offices of the Immigration Department of the Jewish Agency in various countries.
The card catalogs (ordered by name) were created in the course of the activity of the offices and were used by their personnel.
The applicants for immigration approached these offices in their places of residence and provided data on themselves and their family.
