Eliminating the Archive of the Hungarian Province of Society of Jesus (1950)

On 7 September 1950, the Presidium abolished most monastic orders in Hungary. The Jesuit Order was also dissolved, the central Provincial Archive was completely destroyed, and the collections of the Jesuits were scattered. Fragments from the collection were given to reliable members of the faithful, who kept them in their homes, or monks took the documents and kept them safe.
