Slovak Jewish Census - 1941

By Peter Absalon


This database contains  18,238 Jewish names from various Slovak cities and towns, taken from registration sheets of Slovak Jewish Census. This forced registration was done by the Slovak government before their deportation to concentration camps in Poland.

The list of Jews was compiled based on the Section 6 of Law 198/1941, requiring all police stations across the country to register all Jews and produce 3 different category sheets as per following criteria:

  • List A: contains all names, that are not registered in List B or List C
  • List B: contains names of men, whether employed or not, aged 16 - 60 years
  • List C: contains names of men aged 60+ years and employed women aged 16+ years

The registration sheets are kept in the Slovak National Archive in Bratislava; the only exception is the list from Bardejov, whose copies have been donated to the LDS by Abraham Grussgott. The complete Bardejov material is available on LDS film 1183504, Items 3-4.


This database includes 18,238 Jews from Slovak towns prior to the deportations. The fields for this database are as follows:
