Prefecture Office Entry no 2354-12/23/1941

Mr. Prefect,

The undersigned Schäffer Wolf, merchandiser from Siret, 9 Franz Beill St,
With honor I ask you to deign to order the Siret City Hall to release me the sum of over 190.000 lei from their safe, resulted from the sale of 3 freight cars of corn taken from my corn warehouse and I am motivating my request as following:

On 6/7/1941 I was taken from my residence in Siret and imprisoned in the Tg. Jiu Camp. My family remains in Siret until 6/26/1941 when they have been evacuated with the rest of the population. With part of the population coming back, the Siret City Hall, under the pretext that the population is lacking corn, open my warehouse where I kept corn of over 350.000 lei worth and sold all these corn, as Mr. Mayor pretends, with only over 190.000 lei, money that he kept for me.
Being released from the camp and with absolutely no fortune, I asked Mr. Mayor to release me at least these amount of money he pretend getting it. His Excellency declares to me that he kept it to my disposal but he could not release it to me without the Prefecture accord. Because I am seriously ill and because my entire fortune was destroyed, please, deign to order the release of this money, in the same time I renounce any amends for my corn warehouse.

To his Excellency,
Mr. Prefect of the Radauti County

Siret Headquarter Police
No. 10467/S – 12/31/1941


In response to your order no 2354 Office 12/23/1941
We are honored to report that the Jew Aron Wolf Schäffer released from Tg. Jiu Camp for Political detainees, has been sent to The Radauti Police under the no. 10020 – 12.10.1941 to be overpass into Galitzia or Bug.
