Description

This series consists of files of correspondence, decisions, policies, reports and newspaper cuttings regarding the assimilation, welfare and education of displaced persons who migrated from Europe to Australia, internees and prisoners of war.

This series is one of seven classes of correspondence files maintained by the Department of Immigration and its predecessors from 1939 to 1950, or for a portion of those years.

The seven classes are:-
A659, Correspondence files, class 1 (general, passports) 1939-1950;
A433, Correspondence files, class 2 (restricted immigration) 1939-1950;
A434, Correspondence files, class 3 (non-British European migrants) 1939-1950;
A435, Correspondence files, class 4 (naturalisation) 1944-1950;
A436, Correspondence files, class 5 (British migrants) 1945-1950;
A437, Correspondence files, class 6 (aliens registration) 1946-1950;
A438, Correspondence files, class 7 (general administration) 1949-1950.

The retention/disposal status of this series is still unknown at present, however a note in the series file by Peter Scott, probably from around 1969, has 'Assessment: Retain all files permanently'.

All items in this series in the custody of the National Archives as at May 1998, have been entered onto the item level database, ANGAM II.
